Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Gone Out - Later Folks gives kids an easy, modern way to let their parents or friends know where they're going, how they're going to get there, and when they'll be home, but there could be some privacy concerns if used with Facebook or Twitter. Through an easy "fill in the blank" interface, Google Maps, GPS, calendar, and camera feature, it's easy for tweens, teens, and young adults to enjoy some freedom while still reassuring parents they're being responsible -- and know to be home on an agreed upon time.

Is it any good?


If used properly and consistently, GONE OUT - LATER FOLKS may be a fantastic tool for tweens, teens, and young adults to communicate the wheres, whens, and with whoms of their daily comings and goings with their parents and still feel a sense of growing freedom. Be aware, however, that posting outings to Facebook or Twitter, if those social networking sites aren't being used with appropriate privacy settings, could carry potential privacy concerns.
