Yahoo! Safely

Looks like Yahoo! has stepped up again to help protect children online by launching a child online protection site... If you don't remember they provided us with Yahoo! Kids, originally known as Yahooligans!, which was founded in March 1996 by Yahoo! to provide children with a venue to find age-appropriate online content for children between the ages of 6 and 12. The site can be used for both educational and entertainment purposes.

This year, during global Safer Internet Day on Feb. 8, 2011, the industry [came] together to help educate families and promote safer and more responsible use of online technology and mobile phones among children and youth.

Online safety is a priority for Yahoo! and [they celebrated] global Safer Internet Day by introducing Yahoo! Safely in 26 countries across 14 languages providing parents, educators and youth with information and advice about making smart choices online. As one of the only global safety resources, Yahoo! Safely offers locally relevant advice on important topics such as managing digital reputations, avoiding cyber-bullying, and learning how to minimize risks on mobile devices.
