  • DIGITAL BRITAIN The internet is 40 years old and the web is 20 – most children and young people are avid users of the internet. It is a taken it for granted place to learn, to play, and hang out with friends. They make easy use of mobile phones, text messaging, instant messaging, and social networks to support , maintain and coordinate their offline relationships. Although the overall rate of internet penetration in the UK is now 70% this is significantly higher in households with children. Over 90% of children &amp; young people (aged 6 to 17) use the internet 50% of 15 to 24 year olds have a social network profile
  • Proposals for ‘proportionate’ procedures and approaches to the use of social network sites ‘developed in consultation with young people and carers’ (‘These are our Bairns’, Scottish Government, 2008) Most popular approach – banning access Care Leavers: far from being unconfident, inexperienced and ‘risky’ online, they had a streetwise approach to using SNS and were very protective of their privacy. They do not put anything on their SNS about their care experience; and that they do not disclose any personally identifiable information.
