Microsoft will celebrate Safer Internet Day
(SID) on February 8, 2011 to raise awareness of online safety and promote safer
and more responsible use of online technology and mobile devices. Organized by Insafe, SID is celebrated in more than 60 countries around the world.

Research to be released on Safer Internet Day

Microsoft is supporting Safer Internet Day by releasing new research aimed at understanding awareness and
perceptions about online gaming from parents of gamers and gamers themselves.
Research findings will be available for download from Microsoft on February 8.

 Safer Internet Day gaming events in major cities

In partnership with the Boys and Girls Clubs of America, Microsoft will also host events in Atlanta, Chicago, and Los Angeles.
Families are invited to experience Kinect
for Xbox 360
and learn about the importance of establishing healthy and
responsible interactive play. If you live in one of the aforementioned areas,
