1. General Safety Tips:
The Naked Social Network is an online social networking community site developed to enhance and improve you and your partner's sex life and/ or sexual relationship. Exploring, learning, and sharing experiences and ideas with like minded people is what it's all about. The site is dedicated to ensuring everyone is comfortable and enjoys the community atmosphere. The Naked Social Network makes it easy to share and express yourself, connect with friends and make new friends as well. Following are some general common sense guidelines that you should follow when using The Naked Social Network:
Even though the Naked Social Network website is intended to be a private community, you should assume that anything you post may become public. Don't post anything you wouldn't want the world to know (e.g., your phone number, address, IM screen name, specific whereabouts, or financial information). Avoid posting anything that would make it easy for a stranger to find you, such as where you hang out every day or a picture of you in front of your office or locally identifiable location. (e.g., a local park with the signage displayed.)
People aren't always who they say they are. Be careful about adding strangers to your friends list. It's fun and exciting to connect online with new Naked Social Network friends from all over the world, but avoid meeting people in person whom you do not fully know. If you must meet someone, do it in a public place and bring a friend.
Harassment, hate speech and inappropriate content should not be tolerated. If you feel someone's behavior is inappropriate, react. Use the 'block member' tool and if needed, report it to Naked Social Network administration.
Don't post anything that would embarrass you later. It's easy to think that only our friends are looking at your Naked Social Network profile and postings, but again, assume everything is public. Even though the site is intended as a private members only environment, there is the potential for your posting to end up posted to the general public.
2. Children's Safety:
In our on-going effort at the Naked Social Network to make your experience as fun and safe as possible, we created the following tips to help parents understand how to protect their children from inappropriate online material:
Talking to your children about the possible dangers that exist on the Internet, and supervising their web surfing is the best ways to protect them. Tell them to never give out personal information about themselves or the family to strangers they might meet online or in a chat room. Remind them that online it's easy for people to pretend to be someone else. They can easily change their name, age and gender in an effort to get close to children. Teach them that they should never meet a new online friend without an adult present. Tell them to never give out their picture to a stranger, and that if they ever get a picture with sexual content, or something they find disturbing, that they should get off the computer immediately and tell you about it. Let them know that if they encounter something or someone dangerous that they can tell you about it and that you won't blame them or get mad.
Although no technology can be replaced for parental involvement, the next step to protect your family is to install parental control software on any computer that children may have access to in your home. Some of the best-known and respected parental control software packages are Net Nanny and Safe Eyes. Microsoft offers Windows Live Family Safety tools as well, and some ISPs (Internet Service Providers, the companies that let you connect to the Internet) provide content filtering as part of their basic service. Check with your ISP to see if this is an option they offer. Many other computer parental control software applications exist as well. Due diligence on your part to find one that you are comfortable with is highly recommended.
Parental control software works by blocking access to specific websites and online content. In most cases, when you buy the software it already contains a large list of sites that are inappropriate for children. You can then update the software through the manufacturer's website or, in some cases, the software will update itself. Another way filtering software works is to block sites based on key words, such as "sex". However, filtering software doesn't have to just block access to adult-oriented material. You can configure the software to filter for topics such as tobacco, drugs, and racism.
