Facebook Parents Portal Launched to Keep Kids Safe

Facebook today launched the Parents Portal to help educate parents on keeping their kids safe on Facebook and the internet in general.

“Today we are launching the Facebook Parents Portal, featuring new resources for parents on Facebook,” said Antigone Davis, Facebook’s Head of Global Safety. “Our goal is to help foster conversations among parents and their children about staying safe online.

Visit the new site at facebook.com/safety/parents.”

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-1-46-43-pm“For internet safety around children, I think the most important thing for parents is to be proactive and to really spark the conversation with the child,” said Neil Potts, Public Policy Manager at Facebook.

“Parents shouldn’t be afraid of technology,” said Christine Chen, Communications Manager at Facebook. “I think technology can bring so many joys to our lives and it’s something that can be shared with your kids.”

“At Facebook, we take the safety of all of our users, especially children, incredibly seriously,” said Alex Stamos, Facebook’s Chief Security officer. “We want to have a partnership with parents where we can work together to make sure their kids are not only safe while they are children, but to learn the ways they should be careful for their entire lives.”

“The ultimate goal of the Parents Portal is to really foster important conversations between parents and their children around online safety, these technologies and social media,” noted Davis. “The way that we hope to do that is by providing parents information about some of the fundamentals about Facebook so that they can engage in a meaningful conversation, hopefully many meaningful conversations with their children over the course of their lifetime.”

screen-shot-2016-12-13-at-1-57-51-pm“Everyday parents like me come to Facebook to share their special moments, ask for advice in groups and connect with friends and relatives living far away,” said Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook’s Chief Operating Officer.

“Many parents also have questions about how Facebook works, especially once their kids join,” she says. “That’s why we’re launching a new Parents Portal within the Facebook Safety Center. We’ve compiled some basic information and tips to help you and your child stay safe on Facebook and get the best out of your experience. We are also pleased to connect you with online safety experts around the world who offer resources, especially for parents. We hope that you find these resources useful and that Facebook helps you and your children connect to the people and things that matter to you the most.”

Josh Duggar: Is He Under Suicide Watch in Light of ’19 Kids and Counting’ Cancellation?

Josh Duggar is definitely the reason behind TLC’s cancellation of 19 Kids and Counting. The network can’t even create a spinoff given the way Josh’s scandal has tarnished the Duggar family name. Since shortly after his sexual molestation scandal broke in the media, Josh has kept a very low profile. He resigned from his job and moved his family–pregnant wife …

Friday Roundup: Vine for Kids, Facebook measures lift and more

vine KidsIt’s roundup time! A quick look at all the news that slipped past me or just wasn’t big enough to print. That doesn’t mean these stories aren’t interesting — because they are!

Let’s get to it!

Vine for Kids

The subtitle says it all. Vine has launched a separate app which is nothing but hand-curated content for kids under 5. They don’t say how far under 5, but if your newborn can press the button, they can enjoy these videos, too.

It’s a smart idea and a great example of how segmenting your business can send you off in a whole new, and wonderful direction. Think they’re going to allow branded content? Toy makers? Cereal companies? Studios pushing movies for kids. . . . ?

Facebook Measures Lift

Facebook says that advertisers are too dependent on the click. It’s understandable. That’s the one action that’s easily measured. Either a person clicked or they didn’t. Once they clicked to visit a site, we can track movements and determine whether or not they bought something.

But Facebook doesn’t want you to discount the power of lift. I see your ad, I don’t act on it but later, when I’m in the grocery store, I remember your ad which makes me buy your product. That’s conversion lift and Facebook wants to help you measure it.

  1. When creating a Facebook campaign, a randomized test group (people that see ads) and control group (people that don’t) are established
  2. The advertiser securely shares conversion data from the campaign with Facebook. Typically, this data comes from sources like the Facebook Custom Audiences pixel, conversion pixel or secure point-of-sale (POS) data.
  3. Facebook determines additional lift generated from the campaign by comparing conversions in the test and control groups
  4. The results of the study are made available in Ads Manager

 

Sounds complicated, but Facebook has to do all they can to convince you that your ads are working even when people aren’t clicking. The one thing Facebook and I do agree on, is that it’s all about the bottom line. If revenue is up this month, then keep doing what you’re doing because it’s working.

LinkedIn for Good

4-million-linkedin-members-want-to-volunteer-their-skills-for-good-1-638I want to wrap up with this call out for volunteers. There are 4 million people on LinkedIn who are interested in using their skills for good. Are you part of that 4 million? The next time you’re on LinkedIn, check the boxes for “Joining a nonprofit board” and/or “Skills-based volunteering” in the Volunteer Experience & Causes section.

If you work with a non-profit and need help, visit https://nonprofit.linkedin.com/ to post an opportunity or search for qualified candidates.

I know you’re busy but volunteering is a great way to network and expand your own skill set. And who can’t use a few more good karma points?

That’s it for me. Do something nice for someone or a lot of someones this weekend. You’ll be glad you did.

Kate Gosselin Reportedly Forced Her Kids To Vacation in Alaska For TV Ratings

Kate Gosselin’s name is being dragged through the mud yet again.

According to Radar Online, the re-release of the shocking tell-all book, Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled The World, has new claims that center around Gosselin’s first reality show Jon & Kate Plus 8.

In 2010, the 39-year-0ld reality TV star reportedly forced her eight children to go on a vacation to Alaska with politician and former Alaskan governor, Sarah Palin. The trip was said to have been orchestrated by TLC in an effort to boost the show’s ratings.

Robert Hoffman, the best-selling author of the infamous slam-book, claims that Kate was totally in agreement with the network. However, the children had no desire to go on the trip.

Hoffman also claims that their daughter Mady was so upset about going to Alaska that she called her father Jon Gosselin to come and get her the night before they were scheduled to depart.

“Mady couldn’t take it anymore and called Jon the night before, begging him to come and get her and take her back to his apartment. She absolutely did not want to go away for more filming, and especially not as far away as Alaska. I know this because I went to Kate’s house that night with Jon to pick up Mady, and I heard the discussion between Jon and Kate – through the intercom at the gate,” Hoffman alleged.

“Kate completely disregarded Jon’s concerns about Mady and blew it off by saying that Mady was just tired and she didn’t mean what she said. She, of course, managed to insult Jon several times during the exchange. This was at night, in the dark, with no paparazzi watching; it was just a loving father coming to get his unhappy daughter who had called him for help.”

Unfortunately, Jon wasn’t able to pick his daughter up. Instead, he was met with threats from his estranged ex-wife. When Jon reportedly told Kate he’d be back the next day to pick up his daughter, she became enraged and threatened to call the police if he came to the home.

“Jon told Kate that he would be back in the morning to get Mady, and Kate told him that she would have the police at the house to arrest him if he tried,” he wrote. But, to no avail, all eight children did end up going to Alaska.

Hoffman also explained that he has proof to support the accusations. The young child can also be seen crying in the pictures that were used to promote the episode, which recounted the trip to Alaska.

“While only a handful of people knew about the drama leading up to the Alaska  trip, the family photo that TLC released to the media to promote the episode  actually ended up giving away the fact that something was going on with Mady.  You’ll see a very smiley Kate with all the kids. But if you look at Mady, on the  far right, you’ll see how sad and miserable she is. She’s crying in the  publicity photo. That photo is all the proof anyone would ever need to see that  she didn’t want to be there… That picture was worth a thousand words.”

Several media outlets have speculated that the claim in the book is actually true due to the questionable picture. With the re-release of the book, rumors have begun to stir about Kate’s questionable parenting skills yet again.

Do you believe Kate Gosselin has the best interest of her children in mind?
