According to CBS’ The Early Show, YouTube.com is giving parents the ability to block questionable content from their kids YouTube viewing. The new control sounds similar to Google’s “Safe Search” feature which has long been available to anyone using Google’s search engine. Unfortunately, it seems as if someone forgot to tell YouTube about this new setting and the Safety Mode link, displayed on The Early Show has yet to appear on the home page.
Confused users are starting to appear on YouTube’s Help Forum wondering where this new safety feature is. Maybe someone at YouTube decided to block it.
