What's What, a website built in part by CommonPlaces, appeared on Mashable yesterday in a roundup of "5 Fun and Safe Social Networks for Children." We were very excited to see What's What in the news, and even more excited to see a very favorable review of the site. Check out the Mashable article here.
As mentioned in the Mashable article, registration on What's What is based around facial recognition, a technology CommonPlaces integrated into the site. On each login, the child's picture is taken via webcam and matched with their picture on file. This prevents unauthorized individuals from logging into the site.
