Safe web space for children
Professor Sonia Livingstone's research 'UK Children Go Online' has had a substantial impact on the design of safeguards to protect children from harmful material on the internet, as well as exposing how much young people are exposed to such material.
Based on her research, Microsoft developed educational material which they distributed to every secondary school.
Virtual Global Taskforce, an alliance of law enforcement agencies working to prevent online child abuse, also used her work in their public safety materials.
The findings have been used by the Home Secretary's Task Force for Child Protection on the Internet to review self-regulation procedures, including the forthcoming guidelines on social networking for children.
