In a world where children are dependent upon the social media sphere, it remains important for parents to be aware of the people with whom their children are interacting.


Ron Stevenson and Bala Balabaskaran are the chief architects behind Schakra--a software company based out of Redmond, WA that provides services to other world-class technology companies such as Microsoft, along with numerous business enterprises and solutions. They have just launched a website upon the Schakra platform, called GoGoSTAT.com, which contains various applications to help users manage their online social media experiences.


As former Microsoft Executives AND Dad's, Ron and Bala recognized that technology is changing the very nature of kids' friendships. The use of Facebook has exceeded the use of Google in overall traffic, and parents are now nervous about giving their kids free reign of these social media platforms. Because cyberbullying is such a growing trend amongst young people, parents want to be able to have more control over who their children connect with online.


In June, a new application will launch on GoGoSTAT.com which will allow parents to monitor their children's activity on websites like Facebook. Parents can first define the rules and criteria that will be monitored on Facebook, and then receive notifications pertaining to these settings.
