YouDiligence is a new service for parents that protects
teens and tweens from online predators and cyber-bullies by
scanning their MySpace and Facebook profiles for
inappropriate content

MONTPELIER, Vt., Feb. 6, 2009 — YouDiligence((TM)TM
(http://www.youdiligence.com) gives parents the power to be
proactive in protecting their children from online predators
and cyber-bullies. YouDiligence scans children’s MySpace and
Facebook pages for inappropriate content and then
automatically alerts parents by email.

"Recently more than 90,000 child predators had their MySpace
accounts terminated by the company and some news reports
have indicated that many predators have now sought refuge on
Facebook. This should serve as a wake-up call to parents. It
only highlights that innocent children are being exposed,
stalked and bullied on social networking sites. Now parents
can turn to YouDiligence, a service that allows parents the
peace of mind knowing they are doing everything they can to
protect their children, while still allowing them to use the
internet safely," said Kevin Long, president of
YouDiligence.Most kids ages 10 and up spend an average of 20-30 hours per
week communicating on social networking websites, like
MySpace and Facebook, which control about 93% of the social
networking market for kids. These sites are online hang-outs
where tweens, teens and adults create virtual profiles, post
comments on each others’ pages, trade messages and upload
photos and videos of themselves for anyone to see.

"Even computer-savvy parents can find it difficult to keep
up with a child’s activities on these sites. However,
YouDiligence is easy to use, affordable ($9.99/month) and
automatically scans a child’s social networking profiles for
inappropriate content and immediately notifies parents by
email when it finds matches to those words," added Long.

YouDiligence works directly over the Internet on Facebook
and MySpace, so there is no complicated software
installation on individual computers. Parents can feel
comfortable that no matter where, or on what computer their
child is posting material from, when a match is found, the
term, the context and location are sent to the parent’s
email in real-time, allowing them to react to potentially
dangerous situations appropriately.

YouDiligence is a leader in the emerging field of online
reputation management, and is headquartered in Montpelier,
Vermont, with offices in Washington, DC and Indiana.
