Re: Online Safety Bill

There are 117 million people living in Ethopia, yet Meta only contracted for 25 content moderators for the entire area.

After a professor is slandered and doxxed on facebook, Meta failed to take down the posts either in a timely fashion or at all and he ended up getting murdered.

His son brings a multi-billion dollar case against Meta. This programme reports that the ruling could change the internet forever:

Now, now. No need for sweeping generalisations.

Ethiopia was home to 6.40 million social media users in January 2023, equating to 5.1 percent of the total population.

110 million of them might both not care and be unable to use the internet to tell anyone.

Re: Online Safety Bill

There was a feature about banning u16's from having smartphones on This Morning earlier today. This idea seems to be gaining traction with 83% of parents thinking that this should be done.

It was said that Claudia Winklemans sister (Sophia) is now campaigning for parents to bring about change.

Another view was that it's not for the Government to deal with this, but to make the websites deal with any issues themselves. A former MP said that the Government was aiming to do this with the Online Safety Act. She went on to say that a lot of problems were caused by websites not enforcing their own rules and that this will be dealt with by imposing fines on those who fail to comply.

From about 50 mins in, less adverts:

There are only so many ways of reiterating:

Re: Online Safety Bill

Assuming it's the same poll from This Morning & the Daily Mirror, it looks like they got their 83% figure from these stats in your link:

Quote:
Overall, 83% of parents said smartphones are harmful to young people and 69% supported that limiting children’s access to their devices would make their life easier. Nearly nine in 10 (89%) parents said they were concerned their children could face online bullying and abuse through using a smartphone, while 87% were worried they might access harmful content online

Personally I think what they'll probably end up doing is banning smartphones during school time to make it consistent and put the onus onto websites to take measures to protect children under threat of sanctions.

As there's not enough jail capacity, and no willingness to build more, I'm afraid the Conservatives are going soft on crime in the same way they've gone soft on low taxation, soft on funding the armed forces and soft on the economy.
