In this technological age, virtually everyone is on social media platforms, and all young people and adults, even children under 13 have violated the age limit guidelines set on many platforms. A report by the non-profit organization Thorn pointed out that media and communications with strangers pose a huge risk to children’s safety. The organization is committed to developing technologies to protect children from sexual abuse, pointing out that Snap, Facebook, YouTube, TikTok, etc. have worrying gaps in their efforts to ensure the safety of children.
The report said that although children under 13 should not use the app, they are still using the app heavily. Therefore, in the United States, minors usually experience violence, harassment, or sexual harassment from adults through technology. In response to such online intimidation and harassment, children no longer turn to parents or guardians/adults for help but instead turn to the support of technology platforms. These platforms have limited blocking and messaging capabilities and cannot help them cope with the threats they face. . The same bully/stalker with the same ID or on different platforms.
Some other key points in the report put forward some facts, such as B. Children use social media long before their 13th birthday, and it is reported that they often go online with their peers and people who believe that adults and children often identify themselves online Sexual intercourse with LGBTQ+ colleagues. At present, many lawmakers criticize the potential impact of Facebook and Google’s applications on children. Just last week, lawyers from 44 states called on Mark Zuckerberg to abandon his plan to create Instagram for children under 13. In this case, the Thorn report is released at the right time because its report can trigger and emphasize the way young children use social platforms and how the tech giants cannot provide them with adequate support during difficult times. Collaborate on cross-platform solutions between Facebook, Google, Snap, and Thorne that other tools necessary to completely eliminate threats to children.
At the elementary level, children will go online with platforms, parents, and the government to understand how children use technology and develop better ways to protect them from various stimuli. Face the network. Sonn CEO Julie Cordua (Julie Cordua) said in an interview that these three factors can only go hand-in-hand when performing tasks separately and then combining them. The CEO said that the platform needs to better match the design experience, and adults need to create a safe space.
In order for children to have a dialogue between government and politics, politicians need to learn more about children’s experiences on the Internet on the Internet. As the times change, they now need to carefully study the needs of young people on the Internet and the experience they have gained. However, this is not easy, because collecting data on this task can be challenging. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is that the issues involved are extremely sensitive, and much of the best information is stored by the private company that runs the platform. In order to obtain data on this topic, Thorne himself conducted a survey from October 25 to November 11, asking 1,000 children aged 9 to 17 to fill out a questionnaire with parental consent. Although a lot of content was emphasized in the survey, the most important thing is that technology giants created platform security tools without considering platform security tools, because children should not start using platforms until they are 13 years old.
In this regard, the CEO suggested that despite the age limit, there are still many children on social platforms, and all tech giants know about it, so they are responsible for establishing a support mechanism that Thorne can manage. Without considering the platform’s reporting system, 22% of minors who tried to report the leak of nude photos were able to report it. Therefore, technology giants should rewrite their user reviews. The voice is more accurate, so it can be easily reproduced to the user based on the damage reported by the user. Although many minors say that they can do more besides using the g report on the platform, they feel that the security and reporting options on the menu are not enough, and they can’t find the best one for their situation.
