Odds are no one wants to harm your kids. Cyberstalkers are more likely to be an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend or an estranged parent---

uKnow.com, the world’s leading parental intelligence provider and creators of uKnowKids™ announced today the release of its latest infographic “Cyberstalking: The Dangers of Oversharing Information.” Detailed in the infographic are the well-publicized stories of the children of Michael Dell (founder of Dell computers) and Evgeny Kaspersky (founder of desktop security company, Kaspersky Labs) that made judgment errors in choosing what personal information they posted on their social networking sites.
Fortunately, neither teen was harmed, but both cases illustrate the importance of not oversharing personal information online. Both aforementioned teens are children of fathers with world-class technology and Internet safety backgrounds and yet were still susceptible to harm due to posting information on social networks.
Internet and mobile safety expert, Tim Woda, stated “Odds are no one wants to harm your kids. Cyberstalkers are more likely to be an ex-boyfriend or girlfriend or an estranged parent.” As part of its commitment to keeping children safe and updating parents with pertinent information, uKnow.com has designed a campaign to inform parents of the importance of teaching kids the repercussions of sharing too much information online. Woda goes on to give the following advice to all parents “kids in every family make mistakes and monitoring a child’s online activity is hard even for technology visionaries like Michael Dell and Evgeny Kaspersky. These parents have no doubt taken extraordinary steps to keep their kids safe, but every parent can benefit from using a Parental Intelligence System like uKnowKids™.”
