Then, having a rating, parents will get a chance to block the unwanted pages from their home computers without a password.

The rating is said to be based on appropriate age – from U to 18. Users logged into Facebook with a set ID can then be blocked from online casino and dangerous sites using internet filters.

Freedom of Speech or Separation?

There have been some concerns lately about the fact that Ladbrokes, the UK online casino gambling company, has decided to get involved in the UK political scene by schowcasing the company’s opinion on how UK citizens should vote in the upcoming elections.

It needs to be noted that Ladbrokes has merely expressed an opinion, and the company’s adds are tactful. To say more, there is no way to keep online casinos from expressing their opinion, as long as the adds stay within the guidelines.

Be Alert

Semantec suggests that gamers should make sure that they have a very strong and well known antivirus software running on. Don’t impose yourself to the risk of getting a virus onto the computer by downloading some unknown program.
