Kidzvuz: Child Safe Social Media Site – CES 2012

Rebecca Levey from KidzVuz joined the TPN CES Live show to talk about Kidzvuz. This is a safe environment for eight to ten year olds. Rebecca was a mommy blogger. As she reviewed, she thought – why am I reviewing the product? My kids should be doing that. However, young kids shouldn’t be on Facebook or YouTube like that. Therefore, she helped create KidzVuz. This is a completely moderated site where parents have control over what is sent across the network. Kids can then comment and make videos, just like adults do. KidzVuz also can teach parents about how they are sending...
