After Symantec scanned 3.5 million searches, these were the top 10 most used search terms:

1. YouTube
2. Google
3. Facebook
4. Sex
5. MySpace
6. Porn
7. Yahoo
8. Michael Jackson
9. Fred
10. eBay

This is why accountability software is good for parents to have. By installing accountability software you stay informed about your teen’s surfing habits, enabling you to have healthy conversations with your kids about what they see and look for online. So you’ll know if your teen has an affinity for “Fred” (a YouTube star), or news about Michael Jackson, or if they are searching for porn or sex.
