  • Last point Ofcom March 2010
  • Spam - why do they bother? 1 in a million fall for it - send out 10 million... Same for online grooming It can lead to meeting up or online via a webcam
  • Also - set rules re: use of webcams, cameras, camera phones; look for any unusual behaviour
  • If you have young children on Facebook or MySpace , they shouldn’t be — at least legally. The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act ( COPPA ) p reven ts websites from collecting personal information about children who are under the age of 13 without their parents’ permission AOL research = 70% of parents have ‘friended’ their child 1/3 of home internet users aged 8-12 have a profile on social networking sites intended for 13+
  • Ofcom - Ofcom is the communications regulator. they regulate the TV and radio sectors, fixed line telecoms and mobiles, plus the airwaves over which wireless devices operate. - research shows young people are increasingly restricting their profiles to friends only - although some - especially boys - keep them public
  • Cyberbullying – why don’t Facebook automatically remove them? Because it’s not easy – e.g. you can hate things such as sprouts, politicians etc…
  • Cyberbullying – why don’t Facebook automatically remove them? Because it’s not easy – e.g. you can hate things such as sprouts, politicians etc…

  • Four Square http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFXzyJ8mUh4 Four Square - privacy http://foursquare.com/privacy/grid Gowall a.com http://gowalla.com/privacy Facebook Most location-based services are not sp ecifically regulated at pr esent. SMS based location services are covered by a voluntary self-regulation code
  • If some of their online ‘friends’ are people they’ve never met in the real world, this could mean that strangers know their location to within a few metres and might even be able to work out where they live or go to school (as these will be their most regular locations). For this reason, many of these services have a minimum age in order to protect younger users.
  • Many leading games providers offer parental control e.g. limit to age, friends only or restrict time playing
  • YouTube is not intended for users under 13 Safety mode - avoid ‘racy content’ (+ comments)
  • 12% access the Internet through it iPod touches - parental controls Internet filtering can be activated through most phone providers - contact customer services - this is based on aged. NB: if they access the Internet via wi-fi then this bypasses this filtering Last point Pew Internet &amp; American Life Project
  • Ofcom research - 1/3 of 12-15 year olds say if a site has been returned by a search engine it must be true
  • * Microsoft Feb 2010 survey - 66% of European teenagers state their parents do nothing to limit or control their Internet use
  • a 2008 University of California study found that only 5% of teens had online friends they didn’t actually know offline
  • Inhope The mission of the INHOPE Association is to support and enhance the performance of Internet Hotlines around the World, ensuring swift action is taken in responding to reports of illegal content making the internet a safer place.
