Two MPs Helen Goodman and Claire Perry have called for legislation to protect children from social media sites. Facebook’s policy director for the UK and Ireland, Simon Milner, argued that these companies are not based in the UK and won’t abide by UK laws.
In my opinion, it would not take much for parents worldwide to all stand together and demand cyber bullying support on sites, I may be bold to say, but I do think all parents share the same safety concerns for our children. UK sites could perhaps link to sites like Childline. This would reassure parents that if their child did not feel able to speak to them, there was help at the click of a mouse to support their child, should they need it.
