Are you a parent with questions and concerns about Internet safety?

Parents in the US have a toll-free number to call with questions about topics about the virtual world, such as social networking, chat, IM, blogging, cellphone texting, etc. This is a bilingual hotline—English and Spanish—and is sponsored by the Qwest Foundation and operated by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC).

This free service started in February 2007 as a Web site where parents, guardians, children, teens, educators, and law enforcement could type questions into a form and hear back from NCMEC experts within one business day or search a database of online-safety info.

The new toll-free hotline number is 1-888-NETS411 (1-888-638-7411)
