If your kids are using social networks, its absolutely essential that you have a system like FamilySignal. Parents need to be aware of the immense dangers and social pressure their kids are encountering every day.

Across the country, cyber-bullying is in the headlines almost daily. Tragically, in the most extreme cases, the online torment and hateful messages have been blamed for the suicides of several teenagers. In many of these devastating instances, parents and school officials say they had no idea the damaging behavior was taking place until it was too late. FamilySignal helps protect children from the dangers of social networks by monitoring Facebook and Twitter accounts for bullying, sex, drugs and alcohol, violence, profanity, racism and hate. Parents are notified within minutes – with a simple text message on their cell phones – when potential danger is detected so they can take immediate action.
Contact Brian Eisenberg, FamilySignal’s co-founder and a father of four, for a live demonstration of the software and to learn more about how this new technology is protecting children.
FamilySignal is simple to use (it costs $4.99 per month). Families can monitor one or more than one child’s Facebook and Twitter accounts for the same price. The service can be canceled at any time.
“The Internet can be an overwhelming experience for unsupervised kids,” says Eisenberg. “The simplest missteps can lead to major trauma in the blink of an eye. FamilySignal helps parents monitor those missteps and stay out in front when problems arise. Taking on the challenge of social networks together can also help parents maintain a healthy, open, trusting relationship with their children.”
