Facebook, as we know is one of the best sources for connecting with family and friends. Though, it’s not fully safe if your kid has an account (various reasons) but KidSwirl is. It the first ULTRA SAFE social networking site for KIDS! The site has been built from the ground up using a familiar layout (similar to Facebook) which makes it easy for parents to help their kids move about the site. You can either sign-up as a parent or a kid.
The number one priority of the site is KID SAFETY! As a result, they have blocked all bad language, inappropriate and suggestive phrases, and any other word usage that is requested by the parents and users. They are also preparing to launch a PARENT CONTROL PANEL that will give parents 100% control over what their child can see, do, participate in, and even who they can accept as their friends! This is the first site of its kind where parents can finally feel safe and allow their kids to interact with other kids online.
The parent panel will be secured by a password that is set up by the parent so that the child cannot make any changes without parent approval. One of the main features of CONTROL will be that parents will need to approve every friend request that comes through on the childâ€™s account. This will give parents the ability to â€œpre-screenâ€ all friends that their child is interacting with. They will also have the ability to add any level of privacy to their childâ€™s account â€“ so that they can be as anonymous as they would like to be.
It’s, I believe, the only site where kids can finally feel free to interact online in a 100% safe environment. KidSwirl’s admin, Karl, promotes kids by sending them gifts, holding competitions and much more.

Update: Looks like they shut it down. Can’t access the site anymore.
