Description: HOOKED allows you to read stories in chat format for free*.

Every HOOKED story is told in bite-sized, text message format.

Activating parental controls on your Mac is easy; we’ll show you how: 1) Have your main network administrator password to hand This is the password you’ll have chosen when you set up your Mac for the first time.

This will help you assign parental control settings and take control over what your children can see online.

HOOKED allows readers to write their own chat stories, which can be shared with friends, or write a group story in what is called a “Fantasy Chat.” *The chat stories are free to an extent.

Readers receive a certain number of free “hoots” (views of texts in a chat story) every ~35 minutes and can purchase unlimited hoots for .99/month or .99/year.

Mac computers running OS X come with parental control measures built in already.

These allow parents to create profiles for their children to use, with access to certain websites restricted.

Thankfully there are already parental controls built in to your Apple devices.

In this feature we'll show you how to get the most of them.

It’s fascinating (and sobering) that even the young people writing these chat stories know what sells (remember, ATTENTION is the new currency of the web). The quick answer is YES – HOOKED has a search function that allows you to look for search terms, including inappropriate ones like “naked” or “sex.” The chats include X-Rated language and images for the story covers that can include nudity. There’s just too much adult content and Apple is surprisingly incorrect with its seldom used 9 rating.
