Vero Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 5, 2008
Spector Pro 2008, the world's best-selling PC and Internet Activity monitoring software from SpectorSoft Corporation (http://www.SpectorSoft.com), has been enhanced by the inclusion of an easy-to-use tab dedicated to tracking both detailed and summary use of the popular but potentially dangerous Facebook social networking site.
With the addition of the Facebook tab, Spector Pro 2008 includes tracking of both MySpace and Facebook activities, making Spector Pro the easiest-to-use, most feature-rich Spector Pro ever. Perhaps most importantly, Spector Pro 2008 addresses serious concerns shared by millions of parents everywhere.
"MySpace and Facebook are the most popular sites for teenagers to hang out on the Internet," said SpectorSoft President C. Douglas Fowler. "Unfortunately, the information they post about themselves is available to almost anyone else using the Internet, and that includes millions of adults of all ages, thousands of whom are sexual predators trying to prey on young people."
Spector Pro 2008 is the latest and most robust version of the immensely popular and groundbreaking Spector, introduced by SpectorSoft nearly a decade ago.
Spector Pro 2008 helps parents by recording everything a child does on Facebook and MySpace - as well as all PC and Internet activity in general - so parents will know exactly what their child is doing. If a child updates his or her profile, posts pictures, makes comments about other users, sends messages, invites someone to be a friend, accepts an invitation from a new friend, Spector Pro for 2008 will record the information and make it easy to find by simply clicking on the clearly marked Facebook or MySpace tab.
"Anything a child does on Facebook and MySpace will be recorded by Spector Pro, and parents will be able to review that activity," said Fowler.
Spector Pro has been reviewed by PC Magazine, the most trusted computer publication in the world, on two separate occasions. Each time, Spector Pro was selected as the magazine's Editors' Choice. No other monitoring software has received this distinction.
Using Spector Pro 2008, a concerned parent can guard against predators by recording every detail of what the child does on the computer - chats, keystrokes typed, web sites visited, what they search for, emails sent and received, and programs run. Further, with the monitoring program's advanced screen snapshot feature, parents can see not only what their child has done, but the exact order in which they have done it, step by step.
Spector Pro 2008 also has an advanced warning system designed to inform parents when a monitored PC has been used inappropriately. Through the use of keywords and phrases a parent can specify, Spector Pro 2008 can be placed "on alert", emailing the parent an immediate and detailed report of when, where, and how a keyword was used … every time it is typed or appears on the PC, on a web site, in a chat/instant message, or in an email.
Spector Pro 2008 costs $99.95 and supports Windows Vista -- Home Basic, Home Premium, Business, and Ultimate -- whether a user has upgraded to Vista or received it pre-installed. Spector Pro 2008 also supports Windows XP Home or Professional, Windows 2000, and Windows NT.
SpectorSoft develops, markets and supports PC and Internet monitoring and surveillance products for education, business, government and home users, including Spector Pro for 2008, eBlaster for 2008, Spector for Mac 2008, Spector CNE Investigator, and Spector 360.
More than 50,000 companies and more than 300,000 consumers have purchased SpectorSoft solutions to crack down on Internet abuse within their organization, and SpectorSoft has been selected for three years by Inc. Magazine as one of the Fastest Growing Private Companies in America. SpectorSoft monitoring technology twice has been awarded the prestigious PC Magazine Editors' Choice Award.
