UK’s NSPCC Calls for Social Network Regulator to Prevent Child Abuse
The NSPCC recently urged the government to form a regulatory body that would force social networks to introduce greater measures for the protection of children online.
In its recent study, the UK children’s charity established that video chats and live-streaming among children has risen rapidly and it is being used to put kids in sexually abusive situations. According to interviews, predators usually take videos or photos of the kids who live-stream and use them for blackmail.
Just last month, Home Secretary Sajid Javid demanded that companies take “more measures” to tackle child online abuse particularly in live-streaming – or face new legislation.
