Windows Live Family Safety team blogged about what's new with Family Safety, and it was exciting to read about how Family Safety is increasing its effort to not only keep younger children safer online, but teens as well. "we designed new Family Safety to help parents empower their children online, while providing simple controls to monitor and protect their children when needed. We're doing this by focusing on three core areas: Safer social networking, Safer searching across all major search engines, and Safer browsing with enhanced filtering choices."

In addition, When the web filter is turned on, browsing is noticeably faster. Now the page starts loading right away, but the page isn't displayed until Family Safety has determined the rating. There's also a more efficient way to cache the sites you've recently visited on the computer so that you don't have to wait for those sites to be rated again. And, a lot of the ads on internet are inappropriate for children, and we're doing something about it in Windows Live. If you add your child's Live ID to Family Safety, we won't show any paid advertisements on live.com websites when your child is logged into Windows Live. Child-friendly websites," said Live team.
