Who Says the Internet Has to Be a Scary Place?
It seems like everywhere you look nowadays, there's another story about how the Internet has failed us. There are tales concerning everything from viruses and spam to money scams and predators. As if that weren't enough, the latest trend of social networking sites, such as MySpace and Friendster, has definitely compounded our children's vulnerability when it comes to the online world.
In the spirit of not throwing the baby out with the bath water, YOU Magazine conducted a search for some "family friendly" websites. The good news is we found quite a few, starting with a rather unusual website. Did you know that the Internet has its own version of the Oscars? It's called "The Webby's", and it's held yearly to honor the best websites in a myriad of categories. For information on previous winners as well as this years awards, go to www.webbyawards.com.
