BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- WQN Inc. (WQNI:OTC), a leading online security software provider of parental power tools that protect children from cyber-bullies, predators and texting-related car crashes, has retained TransMedia Group for public relations. With products like SAFE, Web Safety and Cell Safety, WQN Inc. has created innovative protections for parents and kids against cyber-bullies, porn, predators and sexters.
Children from the age of 3 are able to easily work smart phones. Generations are growing up with cell phones. The benefits of smart phones are staggering... it's like having the world at your fingertips. However, with great advances always comes danger. These phones are absorbing the attention of our kids, making them more susceptible to predators, pornography and making them more independent from their parents and good decisions.
"It's not often a PR firm has a mission to help save children's lives, so we are humbled and sobered by this assignment from WQN Inc.," (http://wqnicorporate.com/) said TransMedia Group CEO Tom Madden.
Before focusing on the empowerment tools WQN Inc. offers parents, enabling them to monitor and protect their children from online threats, TransMedia plans to publicize these sobering statistics:
- Texting while driving injures two-times more teens than drunk driving
- Four out of 10 kids are victims of online bullying
- One in five kids admits to sexting
- Sixty percent of advertising on mobile games children play can take them to porno sites if accidentally touched.
"Our publicity will emphasize that WQN Inc.'s suite of online security solutions is not an intrusion on children's privacy, but an arsenal of parental power tools designed to help keep kids safe and make parents be better parents," said Glen Calder, President of TransMedia Group.
Publicity will focus on applications that block pornographic websites from advertising on the many games children are playing on handheld devices and that prevent teens from texting while driving, Madden said.
"We selected TransMedia Group because of the firm's vast experience in publicizing security solution technologies, from new types of home security to many web-based businesses, which their publicity has helped to make highly successful companies," said WQN Inc. CEO Michael Adler.
