I found this as a script on a client's website. I choose not to enable their scripts as I am not into social networking. My recommendation is to be cautious. Do not confuse child safety with suitability for children. The question is about suitability, not safety despite the caption over the rating. A child can be safe on an unsuitable website. Excerpts from their website: Smart Layers works seamlessly with all AddThis tools. Increase traffic to your site with social sharing. Drive your users to become followers of your brand.
