Mobicip Announces Internet Safety Parent's Advice Contest - Win an iPod Touch and Mobicip.com Premium Subscription!

SUREN on August 11, 2009

From predators and cyberbullies to any and all kinds of other inappropriate content, the dangers present on the Internet today are numerous.  How do you keep your kids safe online?  Furthermore, with the number of Internet-capable mobile devices, how do you monitor your kids' online activities when you can't be present?

To help parents combat these issues Mobicip.com is sponsoring a contest for mom bloggers and parents in general to find the best advice on how to fight this growing Internet safety and mobile Internet safety problem. The winner gets a new iPod Touch and four other winners get a free subscription to Mobicip.com Premium Internet Filtering service to protect their kids’ iPhone, iPod Touch or Netbooks.

To participate, please describe a technique you have used or seen used to keep kids safe while they are surfing on the Internet in between 25-50 words and post it to your blog or Facebook page, and then post a link in the comments section of the Mobicip.com official contest page [[http://content.mobicip.com/content/Internet-Safety-Parents-Advice-Contest]].  Note that advice that references specific product or brand names is not eligible for the prize.

A panel of parents will select the top 15 entries based on originality and practicality.  These will be posted on the contest site and be open to voting by the general public. After one week of voting, the top vote getter will win the iPod Touch and the next four top vote getters will get free Mobicip.com Premium service for 1 year.

To follow along with the advice from other parents, subscribe to the Mobicip.com blog or our Facebook or Twitter pages.  

Please note:  Advice submissions become property of Mobicip and may be used on the Mobicip site or in follow-on press releases, but your name will not be used without your permission.  In the event we have two submissions of the same advice, we will choose the first entry – so be fast!
