America Off Line

America Online recently announced a new service aimed at protecting children from the dangers of the internet. For only $9.99 a month AOL’s ‘Safe Social’ will help parents monitor what their children do online.  A representative from the company explained how the system works.  “This setup only allows your children to connect to the internet through AOL’s proprietary dial-up service.  This all but guarantees they won’t find anyone else to chat with while on the computer.”
