Today’s social media users are more safety savvy than ever before and want their service providers to be at the forefront of safety initiatives.
Many websites and mobile applications have responded by enhancing their safety provisions with in-app “Report” features to help ensure user safety.
But what happens to that information once it is reported?
Is this information assessed, managed, tracked or trended?
Until now, websites have only has access to reported information on their own site. They have no way of knowing about predatory behaviors which begin on one website but then “jump” to another.
The regrettable reality is that with the prevalence of rapes and sexual assault going unreported, and the low conviction rate for those accused (1.2%), online dating and social media remains very attractive to online predators.

Online predators hide in the shadows between servers. This provides them the anonymity they need to target multiple victims on different websites with intent to harass, scam, and even harm their victims.
So what can realistically be done?
DateSiteData.com helps to bring sunlight to those dark corners of danger where these hazards hide in the shadows and help bridge the gap of concern between platforms.
Think of user concerns like a jigsaw puzzle whose pieces have been blown around by a tornado. Each website only has a few pieces of the bigger puzzle.

By providing an anonymous, safe, and secure public forum where users can submit their concerns from across all social media and personal platforms, DateSiteData.com is able to cross-reference the stories shared through their own forum with similar concerns submitted by participating clients.
