The modern age of communication officially began in 2004, when MySpace emerged as a "social networking site," enticing millions, majority being young teens to sign up and meet “new friends”. What started out as a "place for friends" has grown into a definitive social-networking, and potentially dangerous, phenomenon that has left parents around the world scrambling for advice on how to protect the safety of their addicted children. Today, Social Shield, an Orange County based company, is offering a solution.

“Social Shield offers a free online community where parents can work together and receive the proper knowledge and resources necessary to protect their children” says Sean Percival, CEO of Social Shield.

Social Shield was founded by Percival from Orange County, CA and was created on the basis of helping parents fully understand all the tempting avenues “social networking sites” offer. Percival is considered a Social Network savant and has been featured in Forbes Magazine and several other online publications. Through open online forums parents learn easy tip, tricks, and tools to keep their children safe.

In addition to the online offerings Social Shield is now conducting nationwide seminars for parents titled, “Social Network Safety.” The first of the series will take place in Aliso Viejo, California on August 27, 2006. The seminars will address frequently asked questions parents have while including several demonstrations on what a Social Network is and how to use it safely.
