Lois Smethurst, ICT Leading teacher at Berwick Lodge Primary School has developed an excellent guide for parents keeping their children safe when using social media photo sharing site Instagram. Lois explains:
Often the child’s picture is in the profile, often the child’s full name is in the profile, sometimes they have included the location of the photos on a map, and sometimes they have chosen inappropriate names or profile descriptions. There is a lot to think about in a social media site. If you wouldn’t share all of this information with a stranger you meet in the supermarket why would you share it online with people you have never met?
