The web abounds with free stuff to create and share back online and in products we create. As we use these sites, we have to look beyond the creative part and notice what is displayed on the screen as advertisements and promotions. This coupon image was created at Customized Magnets – Kids/Children and was advertised at Custom Sign Generator as #35 Kid’s Safe Zone. After some investigation it was determined that some advertisements are not appropriate at this site and if students click back to the main site, there are places they should not visit. This site has a lot of great tools for adults to use but not safe for the younger set. Just because it is free, does not mean it is safe. Always be on the cautious side and explore and investigate before you share.
