[Security] Safer Internet Day 2012
Did you now that…
26% of children report having a public social networking profile
12% of European 9-16 year olds say they have been bothered or upset by something on the Internet
…however, 56% of parents whose child has received nasty or hurtful messages online are not aware of this
Today, in more than 70 countries worldwide, the ninth annual Safer Internet Day is being celebrated as part of a global drive to promote safer Internet usage for children and young people. This year’s campaign, “Discover the digital world together…safely” is focused on connecting generations and educating each other. Tech-savvy youngsters can teach older generations how to use new technologies, while parents and grandparents draw on their life experiences to advise younger generations on how to stay safe online.
