YouDiligence.com — 'Automatically scans your child’s social networking sites for keywords and emails you when it finds them'

Nchgcfg

Because going in their rooms and searching through their stuff is so last century.

From the website:

    YouDiligence™

    It is not easy to be the parent these days. Most children from the age of 12 and up communicate online via social networking sites. Think of these as internet hangouts where tweens, teens and even some adults go to interact virtually on websites that contain areas for posting comments, trading emails and even putting up photos of themselves for anyone to see.

    Currently, the most popular sites for your kids are Facebook and MySpace.

    Even if you are computer savvy, it is difficult to keep up with who your child is interacting with virtually. However, now there is an easy way to become more informed: YouDiligence.

    Our service automatically scans your child’s social networking sites for keywords and emails you when it finds them.

    If you’re a parent and want to sign up for YouDiligence when it becomes available, send us an email and we’ll notify you: parent@youdiligence.com

But wait — there's more!

    YouDiligence as a Fundraising Opportunity

    Are you a member of the PTA or [do you] belong to a band/athletic booster club, church group or other organization?

    Would you like to sell YouDiligence as a fundraiser?

    YouDiligence is offering an easy, no-cost opportunity to help your organization earn much-needed funds simply by sending out emails to your membership list offering YouDiligence to your organization members.

    Each organization gets $1 per referral purchase/month — so if you sell 500, then your organization would get $500 per month.

    A little better than selling candy bars for a lot less work — and we even give you the email template.

....................

And that's not all.

I never thought I would see monitoring solutions be offered as a fund-raiser option for schools and clubs. Well, each day is a new day.

On topic, it seems this would have limited usefulness. Unless I'm mistaken, it appears that it would only be able to monitor directly posted comments on the profile pages... IM and email-style messages wouldn't be included.

I don't get it.
If a parent wants to make sure their kid isn't exposed to foul language or references to illegal drugs, I guess they would have to input all those nasty words as keywords. Then, if this site does what they claim, 3 Million emails later the parent would find out that Myspace has nasty words in it and maybe a drug reference or two (million). DUH...

Parents that stupid probably don't know how to operate the interweb anyway.

I'm everywhere it seems. Privacy != reality.
