The purpose is to keep these kids safe across all devices
1266_ 8/27/12 - Hilary DeCesare, Co-Founder and CEO of Everloop. Hilary is a digital parenting expert and a mother. She recognized the unmet need for a safe environment for children to share, to talk, on the Internet. Came up with the idea of Everloop and their innovative technology called looping. Children join loops that share common interests. Everloop is a social media platform designed for kids under 13. There is a huge craze going on out there where kids are using devices far earlier than ever. You've got kids as young as 5, 6, 7 going on their parent's smart phones, iPads, desktops. What Everloop is trying to do is make sure when these kids go out into the wild, wild Internet and they're exposed to adults, that they're ready to actually be there and they're not making mistakes. So Everloop's purpose is to really keep these kids safe across all devices. During the interview Lucy Sanders, CEO for the National Center for Women and Information Technology or NCWIT along with Larry Nelson, Director of w3w3® Media Network talked with Hilary about the lessons learned and future expectations. She said, "Don't lose sight of your purpose. Put together one page on what you're hoping to accomplish and what are your milestones going to be." Hilary is big on putting plans together - a 30 day, a 90 day... you have to be organized enough that when you hit those small successes you stop and take note - that was really good I've been able to accomplish this. If you don't, you're spinning and spinning and miss the fact that you're progressing. Listen for much more...
