helps make social media safe for kids. It is one of the few kids-only social network offering its members all the best of the Internet – their own blog, hundreds of games, a virtual world, the fostering of shared interests through “spheres,” social interaction, contests, rewards and a scholarship program. Members’ online safety and privacy are a key priority through the application of common sense safeguards. The site is hyper-focused on supporting the positive interests and aspirations of its members. No child has to pretend to be 13 to join. Yoursphere offers free as well as premium memberships to its young audience up to age 17. Yoursphere’s priority of children’s online safety and privacy is achieved via implementation of technology, human oversight, proprietary policies including input from their Law Enforcement Task Force populated by former Secret Service, FBI agents and other law enforcement officials as well as through education and action. Yoursphere adheres to the federal Children‟s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and is approved by the Privacy Vaults Online Safe Harbor of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Yoursphere‟s companion site, Yoursphere for Parents., equips families with practical tools for handling the online world to help ensure a positive and safe experience. YoursphereForParents is read by parents in more than 96 countries. The Yoursphere Media Foundation and Coalition for Internet Safety Education and Reform was founded in 2012 to empower children and their families through education and solutions to help them live a healthy and happy digital life. The Foundation is dedicated to creating a network of community educators that provide children, their parents, schools and communities, with the necessary skills, knowledge and tools they need to have a positive and safer digital experience.
