Social Networking Safety is an open forum for sharing the latest information, news and tools to help proactively keep our families safe in the ever-changing world of social networking.
With much to be gained from social media – the connectivity, the creativity, the education, the entertainment, the engagement – there is also much we need to proactively be prepared to protect ourselves and our families from. This includes, but is not limited to cyberbullying, identity theft, privacy issues and an adult-culture that doesn’t have our children’s best interests in mind. Thank you for being a part of this group. Together we can make a difference.
Some of my most favorite folks on the web are in this group and have been a part of it, since the beginning!
Approximately 30 million people are entrapped in some form of slavery, according to Not For Sale. Despite the fact that The International Day for the Remembrance of Slave Trade and its Abolition is August 23, it feels like only a partial victory. In Thailand, India, Latin America, The Netherlands, and Romania people are still being kidnapped and forced into the sex industry.
Spectators never see the whip being cracked, the unstoppable tears, or the constant tension both slave and master have with one another, but the truth is only half the reality.
“Together, with a collective shout,
we can end child trafficking and exploitation“
Unfortunately, as long as there are buyers in the market, the slave trade will stay alive. With the power of education, resources given by non-profits and assistance from the government, people can reverse this. “We’re seeing improvements and progress,” told Henry. A day will come when the word slave will be as extinct as the dinosaurs. This is a fantastic article, and we all need to understand and try and make a difference… we NEVER know who’s daughter, we might be saving!!!
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Government.
Enact a Cyber Law
My name is Kelley Cahill and I am creating a petition that will make it a felony and crime punishable by law for anyone who frauds, cons or deceives any persons online.
As a result of meeting a man on Match.com six years ago who claimed he was divorced, I entered into a year long relationship that resulted in financially investing and emotionally investing all I had all to find out that he had been married the entire time and that he had been conning women on social media sites and dating sites for about 12 years. Read the full letter & petition!
Hello Friends and CASPIAN Members:
Katherine Albrecht here, with a live radio update today and urgent news about Macy’s department stores. The $25 billion retailer has announced it will attach RFID (radio-frequency) tracking technology to 300,000 pairs of shoes, starting next month. Their exact words are:

Please tune in to my radio show from 4:00-6:00 PM Eastern for this breaking story, and to formulate our response. You can listen here:
