Online Child Protecting Resource

Here is a useful resource for online child protection, it lists all the various social networks available and describes what they are. Most parents are aware that there are many more social networks than they perhaps know about and this list might be very useful for you. Remember though -  the social environment changes all the time. This list is current as of August 2017.
