Child Focus 'E-safety'

One of the key missions of Child Focus is prevention. This clip was made as an e-safety awareness campaign for children between 4 and 8 years. It's being aired on Belgian kids channels and will be distributed in other European countries too. Script & animation by CC.

Snapchat (& Snap Map)

If you are not already aware, the social media platform Snapchat has recently introduced a location-sharing feature called Snap Map that allows users to share their exact location with people on their ‘friends’ list in real time. Users who are sharing their location appear on a map as a cartoon avatar. The feature is so accurate that individuals can even be tracked to specific rooms within buildings. This could clearly create safeguarding concerns for our children as it could potentially be used to build up a picture of home addresses, travel routes, schools and places of work.

 

However, it is possible to set one’s location to ‘ghost’ mode so that others cannot see your location. The link below provides useful advice for parents; as always we would encourage that parents have regular conversations with their children about staying safe online.

 

IT is also worth remembering that the recommended minimum age for using a number of these social media platforms (including Instagram and Snapchat) is 13 years old.
