As part of its ongoing Online Safety Education Initiative, FOSI's roundtable was held at the Googleplex, Mountain View, California. Entitled 'Searching for Online Safety Solutions', it attracted over forty participants. With opening remarks from Anne Collier of Net Family News (a participant in the PBS FRONTLINE Growing Up Online documentary) and hosted by Stephen Balkam, FOSI's CEO, the event proved an outstanding success. With panellists from Facebook, MySpace, Ning, Google, Yahoo!, AT&T, Second Life, Loopt and YouTube, it provided a fascinating insight into the online safety measures already deployed by industry and how they protect families online.
