What You'll Get
The Internet can be a dangerous place, full of false personas, get-rich-quick schemes, and friend requests from “completely domesticated” sharks. Help protect kids from the wildest strangers in town with today’s Groupon for SocialShield. Choose between the following options:
- For $15, you get a three-month subscription (a $30 value).
- For $40, you get a one-year subscription (a $96 value).<p>
SocialShield affixes digital monitors to the Internet’s most dubious doorways with a parental-control device that PCMag pegged as an Editor’s Choice product, calling it “one impressive monitoring tool.” After a quick installation syncs the software with a young social-networker’s Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, Google+, or FormSpring account, parents begin to receive regular updates on inappropriate behavior or potentially dangerous activities associated with the account.
SocialShield’s omniscient gaze detects electronic wellsprings of foul language, reputation-harming photographs, troublesome friends, and status updates with suspiciously proper grammar. From an easy-to-read online dashboard, parents can view the aggregated analysis of all social-network accounts. Presented as a color-coded alert meter, the analysis dips into the red to indicate a high level of danger and sways back to green soon after spoiling tweeted plots to usurp the family throne.
