Protect Your Children from Being Bullied | The Story Behind SociallyKnow

Hi, I’m Betsy Dawson.  I’m a single mother of a teenage son and founder of SociallyKnow.
 
My boy is like virtually every other teenager today: constantly online.  And there’s nowhere he spends more time than on Facebook.
 
Though I’m a friend of his on Facebook, which allows me to see most everything that goes on, I found that it’s very easy to miss something – including important “somethings” – unless I spend as much time on the site as he does.
 
Like you, I have a good child and I pride myself on being a good parent.  But you know, that’s not the issue.  I’m also a good driver, but I would never get behind the wheel without my seatbelt.  And I’d never let him do so either.
 
So I created SociallyKnow to be my “social media seatbelt.”  It provides me with the peace of mind that my son isn’t being bullied or harassed online.  With SociallyKnow, I get a notification email if my son is in contact online with people that I have disapproved.  I am alerted if he sends or receives messages that contain key words from our extensive lexicon of graphic, offensive, bullying, harassing or drug/alcohol-related language.  I can also see every photo posted of him online, so I can help him understand how some images can harm his reputation.
 
I not only can see any potentially worrisome issues related to my son’s interactions with his friends but, just as important, I know if a “friend of a friend” is a cause for alarm.
 
My friends with teenage daughters count on SociallyKnow even more than I do!
 
As we like to say, SociallyKnow helps good parents parent better.  And that starts with me.  So, I’m not only a founder… I truly rely on SociallyKnow to help protect my son from threats that he often doesn’t recognize.

I invite you to try it out for yourself free of charge – for 30 days
I think you’ll find some new peace of mind as well.

  • This is so great. It is nice to know that this tool is available to help you protect your children while they are online. Thank you for sharing!
  • In these days and times, with the awareness of bullying, I think it's important to be aware of what our kids are watching AND doing. Unfortunately, FB is very susceptible to bullying tactics and I appreciate that someone else can recognize that.
  • I think this is great. Of course I only have a 3 year old, but I do think its necessary to protect them in this way. The internet can be so mean to people because people can say things about you and hide behind their computer screen and not take responsibility for their actions. Plus I'd like to know if any drug related things were going on with my child. I think all in all a great program to have for your online kids. Heather recently posted..This Week In Pictures
  • I love all of the alerts! Not only do you have to worry about what others are saying your child, you have to worry about the fact that maybe your child is the bully!
  • Wow! This is a really great tool for parents I have little ones now but when my kids are in their teens I will be taking full advantage of this thank you!
