The Nanny Report - July 2014

Net Nanny News

July 2014

In this month's newsletter: pornography's further decline, betrayal trauma, predators tricking teenage boys, saving Snapchat photos, and more.

Can pornography get any worse? Yes, it can. I recently attend a conference discussing sexual exploitation and anti-pornography issues. The "Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation 2014 Summit" was attended by leaders of organizations from around the world including radical feminists, scholars, therapists, an ex-pornographer, an ex-porn film star, religious leaders from various churches, and some technology people that develop Internet content filters, like me.

"What do you mean it was just pornography?" Jessica yelled at her husband Steve. They had been fighting for the past six months. After catching him viewing pornography for the third time in the past six months, his response was, "It's just pornography, why are you so upset?" This argument or one similar to it is used in many homes each day throughout the world. From Steve's perspective, it's just pornography, and he isn't trying to hurt Jessica. On the other hand, Jessica feels betrayed. Should Jessica feel betrayed? Why can't Steve see he is creating tremendous fear for his wife? These are important questions that we must ask in today's society as hundreds of thousands of couples are struggling with pornography in their relationship.

Child predators have been using a new tactic that has Homeland Security Investigations' attention. Predators lure teenage boys into creating child pornography. Here's how they do it: the predator will pose as a young teenage girl and target a boy between the ages of 13 and 14. After beginning a chat through social media sites such as Facebook, the predator proposes a video chat. The predator uses pictures and videos of actual girls to trick the boy into engaging in virtual sex online.

Snapchat, the popular app embraced by teens and many others, gained millions of users on false premises. The creators quickly lured them in under the impression that their texts and photos would disappear almost immediately after being viewed. The idea of sending promiscuous images without any consequences was enticing and many fell for it. Snapchat users boldly shared explicit and embarrassing photos with friends and acquaintances.

When your child makes the honor roll at school, you want to share it with everyone. Sometimes she'll get a bumper sticker you can put on your car to let everyone know that she is an honor student. But you may want to think twice before putting that bumper sticker on.

You can also add Reminders to email notes to help you remember time-sensitive responses and related tasks.

Evernote Tip 5 of 5: How to Find Anything

Evernote Tip: Find Things Fast

Quick Tip #5 - Find Anything
Finding things in your Evernote account is simple.

No matter how you organize your stuff, Evernote makes it easy to find just what you need. Search for keywords in the content of your notes, or search for text in photos of business cards, receipts, and whiteboard notes. Premium users can also search through attachments such as documents and spreadsheets with Document Search.

Try Out Image Search
Snap a photo of anything with text in it. Sync and give us some time to process the image. When you need the note later, simply search for a word or two from the image.
