Social Media Week London is over for another year, and now is the time to take stock of all the events, and all the knowledge that was shared by agencies, brands, practitioners and consultants.
As well as sitting on the panel for the ‘Through the Eyes of a Child’ event, hosted by Doco London (some great discussion, and well worth catching-up on it if you didn’t manage to attend), we also hosted 3 other events spanning insights and data, to social customer service and child safety online. We were surprised to hear that we were one of only two events (the other being the Doco event we just mentioned) put on for Social Media Week that focussed on the issues of child safety online and best practice when targeting, or attracting children and young people.
As mentioned in Jasmine’s post a couple of weeks ago, child safety online is, and always has been at the heart of what we do here at Tempero. We believe that it’s up to all of us – from agencies, to brands, to public bodies – to ensure the highest level of protection for children and young people is carried out properly.
To help those of you that are working in this space, we’ve put together some Protecting Children Online Best Practice Guidance that we hope will be useful at the early stages of planning. Please feel free to download (see link below), share, and drop us a line if there’s a question you have that isn’t covered in the guidance.
