Firewall

Hub / Switch


Pros

Appliance Based Web Blocker


AOL Parental Controls

  • AOL's powerful Parental Controls are now available for free to everyone.


When you set up Parental Controls, you can:

  • Control sites your child visits

  • Decide who communicates with your child

  • Receive email "report cards" of online activity


  • Social networking services allow users to create a profile for themselves. Users can upload a picture of themselves and can often be "friends" with other users.

  • Both users must confirm that they are friends before they are linked.

  • Social networks usually have privacy controls that allows the user to choose who can view their profile or contact them, etc.


Additional Features

  • Some major social networks, such as MySpace, have additional features, such as the ability to create groups that share common interests or affiliations, upload music & videos, and hold discussions in forums. These features are generally unmonitored.


User Behavior

  • Users often try to "collect friends", or try to be linked to as many friends as possible. Therefore, it is not uncommon for users to receive friend requests from people that they do not know. Some users will create additional profiles that assume the identity of someone else, such as celebrities, politicians, or even their pets. Some will create profiles for fictional characters, such as those from video games or Disney films (not dissimilar to role-playing), and some will even create profiles for inanimate objects, such as the Sun or the dwarf planet Pluto.


Privacy issues

  • On large social networking services, there has been growing concerns about users giving out too much personal information and the threat of sexual predators. However, large services, such as MySpace, often work with law enforcement to prevent such incidents.
