Social networking is one of the most common online activities these days, with sites like Facebook and MySpace becoming more popular every day. However, these sites are not necessarily safe for younger teens and tweens, even though they want a space to network, share, and even shop online.

Enter Shop Like Anna, a secure shopping destination, content portal, and social network. It requires parental permission to use, is also monitored very closely by the staff and has a working relationship with the FBI.

According to Mashable, Shop Like Anna "has all the makings of a niche venue that could carry and grow to a popular standing among competitors. The amount of material isn't voluminous at present, mind you. It's more kindling than flame, really. But if security-conscious Web users - parents and children alike - want for a site that enables a rich interactive experience through a variety of features, Shop Like Anna is one player that truly seems to manage an appreciably qualitative balance."
