Are your kids being victimized online? http://www.GlobWorld.com -- a new 3D social media space for kids -- takes aim on cyberbullying.
Online PR News – 02-February-2011 – – GlobWorld
The sad truth:
- 42% of kids have been victims of cyberbullying
- 58% of victimized kids have not told their parents about their cyberbullying
- Girls are twice as likely as boys to be perpetrators or victims of cyberbullying
As today’s kids spend more and more time online, they are increasingly exposed to the unique perils of internet bullying. That’s why GlobWorld.com has arrived -- to provide children a “safe, secure place to explore the positive potential of social media,” says GlobWorld Founder/CEO/Chief Mom Rebecca Nachlas.
Ms. Nachlas’ personal crusade against bullying started several years ago when her daughter was repeatedly tormented by bullies at school. That experience showed Ms. Nachlas how prolific the problem of bullying is for kids everywhere -- both online, and off. Her desire to provide kids a safe haven online served as inspiration to develop GlobWorld.
Ms. Nachlas’ extraordinary journey from concerned mother to internet entrepreneur was recently featured in the article “Meet the Bully Buster” in the February issue of Parenting magazine.
Parent dashboard: A simple interface gives parents full control over their children’s GlobWorld activity and buddy lists.
Safe social networking for kids under 13: GlobWorld uses cutting edge content filtering technology that screens all communications for inappropriate language, and predator behavior to prevent cyberbullying.
Blog membership: Hilarious glob characters prompt kids to read, write, and engage in critical thought through a daily flow of fun, interactive content. But above all else, globs encourage kids to embrace their own unique individuality, and appreciate the diversity of others.
Games: Our games -- both Flash and fully 3D -- help kids learn to use logic, strategy and cooperative play in a silly, colorful environment.

Set in the crazy colorful land of globs, GlobWorld was built for kids with curious minds and creative streaks -- and for parents who value online safety, privacy, and ridiculous fun.
