It?s being called a hate virus ? kids going online to bully others -but there?s a way for parents to now figure out if their kids are part of the problem and if so, put a stop to it immediately.

A University of Tampa graduate created the app ?My Social Sitter? that is now used worldwide.

The technology intercepts, analyzes, and filters inappropriate content in its tracks. ?We have over 3,000 words and sentiments in six different languages,? says Michele Joel explaining how the My Social Sitter app works. ?So a parent would get a text message or email alert if any message that their child sends out is rejected.??Social Sitter is monitored by real, live people just like you, not by an automated script bot that can?t differentiate between spam and genuine interaction on your page.

New numbers show this is a serious problem, with more than 70 percent of school children reporting being cyber bullied during the course of a school year.

?Kids send out hundreds of messages a day,? Joel said. ?Now, we can make sure our kids are sending the right messages, and put a stop to cyber bullying.?

My Social Sitter also flags sexually explicit content.

How does it work?

1. Someone posts an update on one of your social media pages

During work hours, it?s your job to monitor user content on your brand pages in accordance with your brand guidelines and social media policy. When you?re off the clock, SocialSitter monitors the content for you.

2. Our team checks the update and categorizes it for your review and action.

High risk content will be flagged for your immediate review, and you will be alerted by SMS within 15 minutes of anything appearing on your page. Other content is categorized as ?OK? (no action taken), ?General response? (an after hours message is posted – coming soon!), or ?Offensive? (content deleted). We have a standard moderation policy, or we can produce a custom version for you.

3. You rest easy knowing someone is always watching over your virtual children.

Additionally, at the end of every shift (each morning) an Australian team member reviews all content moderated, as part of our ongoing dedication to quality improvement.

‘We switch on, so you can switch off’

Quick notification guaranteed.?Social Sitter is not intended to be an emergency community management service.?Social Sitter doesn’t manage your community — we do not respond on your behalf to questions, ReTweet or Like things, or otherwise engage with your community.
