Socially Know | Protection For Your Socially Active Kids

by Heather Smith on February 24, 2012 · 75 comments

SociallyKnow is a simple program that helps parents keep tabs on things like bullying, sharing sexually explicit texts or photos, suicidal messages, physically or verbally abusive language, or anything questionable in nature.

The program monitors your children’s social interactions in real time, sifting through the often-voluminous clutter to flag key words, phrases and photos that merit your attention.

Always be in the know. Socially Know will email or text you every time your child –

  • Receives sexually oriented, bullying, suicidal or other harmful messages
  • Is contacted online by a stranger
  • ‘Checks in’ at a new location with their cell phone
  • Is tagged in a photo, or uploads new photos
  • Adds a new friend

I learned this is ” not dependent on the device your teen uses to access social media (e.g., cell phone, iPod/iPad, laptop, PC).”

34% of 8 to 18 year olds have at least one Facebook friend they’ve never met.

8 Alan Tong March 3, 2012 at 10:30 PM

Great program! Parents don’t nearly have enough time in the day to watch everything their kids do. I really like the fact that messages that might be considered bullying are monitored and tagged. Thanks!

9 Jennifer Hedden March 3, 2012 at 10:43 PM

11 Richard Morris March 4, 2012 at 9:10 AM

I think it’s interesting how they can track facebook accounts while allowing kids some slack

12 Pete March 4, 2012 at 10:12 AM

13 Andrea March 4, 2012 at 11:20 AM

21 Julie Wood March 4, 2012 at 10:45 PM

SociallyKnow gives you the simple tools you need to protect your teen’s online safety and reputation. This is so important when in the US there are thousands of sexual predators! We need to do something to protect our children!

22 Betty Baez March 4, 2012 at 11:02 PM

Wow 71% of girls and 67% of boys have shared a sexual message or picture with their boyfriend/girlfriend, this scares me!!!!

23 penny hyde March 5, 2012 at 9:03 AM

i find it shocking that 34 percent of the teens using fb have at least one friend they have not met. this is scary. i like the program, when in place, is a great monitoring tool and the use of key words is such a bonus!

24 Darcy Novak March 5, 2012 at 10:45 AM

I love the keywords

25 Trasina McGahey March 5, 2012 at 11:00 AM

I love that it’s done in real time. Some ppl may not know it but cell companies (Metro PCS for sure) offer the same sort of thing free of charge on the cell and will cut off the number pending parent notification. Off topic I know but I love programs like these! Having 3 teens in a tech world isn’t easy and this program for the pc sounds GREAT!

26 Shirley March 5, 2012 at 1:41 PM

SociallyKnow monitors our teens’ Facebook account to protect their online safety and reputation.
