Keeping Families Safe Online
written by Leticia Barr, Chief BitMom
If words like sexting, social networking, tweeting, wall posts, cyberbullying, objectionable content, security, and privacy settings make you uncomfortable, the free BitMoms.com community can serve as a useful resource to help you keep your kids safe online. BitMoms provides news, content, and resources about family internet safety and security issues to make the internet a safer place for children.
Powered by BitDefender, the award-winning provider of innovative internet security solutions, BitMoms is an interactive website and social network. It serves as a hub for conversations on internet safety topics, as well as online safety news.

The Content Library includes information about talking to your children about internet dangers, protecting yourself when online shopping, safeguarding Facebook photos from hackers, and a PDF download about online safety that can be easily shared with friends or used to educate fellow parents PTA meetings.
New content is constantly being added to BitMoms, making it a dynamic and exciting site to visit daily. Chief BitMom Leticia Barr, of TechSavvyMama.com creates blog posts and videos that are uploaded several times per week and the BitMoms community members are also regular contributors to all aspects of the site.

**Personal Side Note: My netbook started acting up in mid-July, and I didn’t think much of it until I was unable to open programs, close programs, or do any normal word processing or work online. (Clearly in denial, right?) I have to admit, the computer was only protected by free anti-malware programs I downloaded onto the device, but those programs did come highly recommended to me by several of my techie relatives. When things got really bad, I reached out to Leticia Barr, my trusty friend (and Chief BitMom).
Leticia suggested I install BitDefender Total Security onto the computer, which I immediately did. I was in awe of how user-friendly the program was, how quickly it scanned, and how thoroughly it ‘cleaned’ my netbook. With the incredibly supportive BitDefender team and awesome BitDefender software, I was able to restore our dear netbook back to good health. I am now a total convert; BitDefender may not be as familiar as other internet security programs here in the US, but I’m a firm believer that once word gets out about how this program knocks others right out of the ballpark, the game will be over. I totally and completely recommend BitDefender to anyone in the market for internet and/or computer security.
This giveaway is open for entry until August 31st, 2010 and is a sponsored post on behalf of BitDefender. However, my feelings and opinions as expressed in the above paragraphs are completely my own, typed on my happy, healthy netbook thanks to BitDefender Total Security.
