EmptyNe.st – Learn When Your Children Check In

  • August 1, 2011

EmptyNe.stParents are naturally wary of their children using social networks, but the way things are they often end up relenting. And when that has happened, the last thing they want is to come across as nosy. They don’t want to give their sons the impression they don’t trust them. But they badly want to have some kind of understanding of what their kids do when they are online. And that is exactly what this service provides: a sort of insight on what children and teenagers do when they are connected to sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Empty Ne.st enables parents to see when their kids check in on Foursquare, Facebook and Twitter. They get to know nothing more. They don’t know where they are, or what they are doing there. All they know is that they have connected to any of these three services.

This means that parents who use Empty Ne.st can get to realize their children are safe while respecting their privacy. And as far as offspring are concerned, a service like Empty Ne.st effectively puts an end to the uneasiness that goes with having to befriend parents on Facebook, or having to explaining to them how Foursquare works, and what all these dots are supposed to mean.

All in all, a service that is certainly less invasive than others like GoGoStat. That doesn’t make it any better or worse, it just makes it a little bit different. Parents who trust their children and who just want to have some kind of understanding of what they are doing when they are out and about will love it.
