KwickLook to Provide Parents with a Simple Way to View Their Children’s Social Media Activity


(PRWEB) November 25, 2013

Parents today have a new platform to help them view their children’s social media activity, KwickLook.com announced today. KwickLook is the easiest and simplest way to know what your kids are saying online by providing a single dashboard showing your children’s accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

“Parents today are the first generation responsible for their kid’s online activities. They're also the busiest generation of parents with limited free time to monitor additional social media sites besides their own,” says President and Founding Partner Chuck Chesler. “Many parents have a Facebook account and have friended their children. The reality is that most kids aren’t even using Facebook for that exact reason,” Chesler goes on to say. “KwickLook.com was created so parents today can have a single dashboard to quickly see what their children are saying and what other children are saying about them on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.”

The reality is that almost all young teenagers are using at least one social media platform. In the past, parents’ only option was to open an account on all those sites, friend their kids, and actively monitor those sites. Most parents have jobs, family, recreational activities, pay bills, and manage their own social media presence. This takes up a huge amount of time. Luckily, using KwickLook is incredibly simple and quick. It gives you a single view into your kid’s social media activity; however, if you need to see more, simply click on a post and you can instantly view the content in more detail.

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released findings from a comprehensive study on the impact social media has on kids and families. Not surprising, social networking is on the rise and the study found that 22 percent of teenagers log onto their favorite social media sites more than 10 times a day.     According to a study by Professors at Brigham Young University in the US teenagers who are connected to their parents on social medial feel closer to them in real life. “It lets parents know what their kids are going through, what their friends think is cool or fun, and helps them feel more connected to their child,” Sarah Coyne, the study’s lead author and associate professor at the university’s department of family life, says.

“Most parents do a great job teaching their children right from wrong, and most kids are great children. We also live in a constantly evolving world and are responsible for our children’s online as well as offline activities. I just needed an easy way to take a quick glance at what my children were saying online and what other children were saying about them,” says Chesler.

KwickLook.com was not created to monitor every portion of a child’s computer time. Just a simple, quick glance at their social media activity to make sure that as a parent, you are comfortable with whom your children are interacting with and what they are posting.

KwickLook is free for the first 30 days and then only $ 2.99 per month regardless of how many children you wish to sign up.

Chuck Chesler has 2 children ages 13 and 11. In addition to running Strategy Sales Partners and playing music, he currently lectures at Central Connecticut State University on Entrepreneurship and Leadership and attended Harvard Business School’s OPM 44 Program. Chesler is a board member of the CEO Roundtable and a mentor with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern CT.

Crowdfunding to Change The Way People View Networks, Information And Commerce


London (PRWEB) June 17, 2013

Urban Cloud is a next-generation social network that has focused on five key areas of innovation:

Innovative Design Urban Cloud is the worlds first social media platform that seamlessly unites social networking and marketing.

Native Advertising Urban Cloud uses a proprietary algorithm called STAC (Space, Time, Active, Content) to blend advertising into a users social timeline.

Validation Urban Cloud is able to weed out unverified and fake/spam user accounts, allowing for an enhanced social media experience for advertisers and users.

Positive Reinforcement - Urban Cloud features a unique reward system, through which a user can accumulate points for interacting with a business. These can be redeemed for rewards to build brand loyalty and recognise social influencers all at once.

Retailing - Each and every user has the ability to retail virtual goods and services on the Urban Cloud platform.

Only half of what Urban Cloud will do has been released (and weve only developed another 20% of the idea). The rest is being given over to the people; their voices will influence what features are implemented next and how the cloud develops.

We are uniting people at the centre of an internet revolution. Having launched a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo we have placed Urban Clouds future into the hands of the world. The community will transform the platform through their collaborated ideas, influencing Urban Clouds direction, and the features implemented on the platform.

We are currently at the prototype stage of development, and are set to launch our second iteration in the coming weeks. It will allow users to create an account, post content and collaborate to improve the Urban Cloud experience for all.

We will also be periodically releasing improvements as the site develops and are set to launch in October.

Businesses out there need this in their lives and we are proud to be a part of it from the onset. Look forward to the future of social business enterprise - Chris Charalambous, Global Creative Director QUINTESSENTIALLY CREATIVE / LIFESTYLE

Notes to editors

The Urban Cloud team:

Edward Heywood - A social science graduate from Queen Mary University, where he specialised in network theories. The initial Urban Cloud concept came out of his research and the problems that he identified.
