I love social media it’s helped me create a business and like others keeps me in touch with friend and is a form of entertainment. I even created a viral social media just by using my head. I write about the dangers of social media that now need to be stopped!
A recent study showed that more childrenare being groomed on Instagram than on other social media platforms,
Police in England and Wales haverecorded more than 5,000 cases of online grooming since having sexualcommunications with a child became a crime in April 2017, child protectioncharity the NSPCC found.
Instagram was used in a third of caseswhere a method was disclosed, while Facebook was used in 23% of cases andSnapchat in 14%. The number of cases on Instagram that police dealt with roseby 200% in the space of a year.
Girls aged 12 to 15 were most likely tobe targeted by groomers, and victims included children as young as five yearsold, according to the group, which based its figures on freedom of informationrequests to 39 of the 43 police forces in England and Wales.
A fifth of the victims were 11 years old oryounger
NHS head Simon Stevens said parents are denying children life-saving jabs because of lies posted on YouTube and Instagram.
NHS England say that fake information isresponsible for people not taking up vital prevention vaccines. YouTube as well as Facebook-owned Instagramand WhatsApp as among the platforms on which anti-vaxxers are spreading what hesaid was “fake news” about vaccines. NHS England said that England
Stevens said discussions within thehealth body has focused on how to stem the spread of anti-vaccination ideas onInstagram and YouTube, and referred to a parent at his daughter’s primaryschool who had used WhatsApp to express concern about children’s immune systemsbeing “loaded up” with vaccines.
Biometric identification could help social media?
I can’t see a problem where stricter meaningful ID verification is introduced by the social media platforms
The Banks and the finance sector have mastered online ID why cant the social media platforms? The threat is so constant and potent to our children, our privacy and even our health, knowing who you are dealing with online has got to be a priority
The Bank Societe Generale is giving its customers the chance to open an account online using biometric facial identification and a dynamic selfie. The bank is deploying this technology to simplify the banking process and reinforce personal data protection and confidentiality. Its this sort of level of identification I suggest that would start to take effect against the negative aspects of social media. I am a realist and know that no security measures are 100% but I believe this sort of action will help towards reducing:
Margot James MP, the U.K.’s Minister for Digital said that “online safety is a top priority for the Government and we want to make the U.K. the safest place in the world to be online
Companies such as Facebook, Instagramand Snapchat will be expected to ensure that only children aged 13 and over areon their platforms and that the content is appropriate for their age.
Those that breach the “age appropriate”code face fines of up to 4 per cent of global turnover by Elizabeth Denham, theInformation Commissioner, who will police the new regime.
She said: “Our code will clearly outlinewhat is required of developers at the design stage so that children areprotected in the first place. Safeguards must be built in, not bolted on.
“We will not hesitate to use ourconsiderable powers to enforce the law.”
Much as a parent who buys their child a cuddly toy should have the confidence there are no sharp edges or loose fixings so they should have the confidence that online games, websites and new technologies will be safe, she said.

Look closely at the FexEx logo and you’ll see an arrow, suggesting the company is moving forward and looking ahead.

The iconic smiling face is actually the letter “g” and it’s on the logo twice.
How about the man riding a bike ?

The power of Youtube cannot be underestimated it can provide businesses with a fresh source of traffic and business and enhance a brand. Budgets to perform well do not need to be huge and success can be had with some simple tips and advice that I provide below.
I was amazed at the power of an Iphone, Imovie and Youtube when I created a video whilst visiting the Thai island of Koh Samui see video below. Just like any social media platform don’t make the mistake of bombarding users with your ‘buy now’ message. Businesses that purely sell on social media turn off their followers and find it hard to engage at the important time when they want there key business messages to be heard.
1.YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world.
2. Since March 2014, the number of people watching YouTube videos has increased by 40%
3. YouTube has over a billion users which is almost a third of ALL people on the internet.
Your videos should be findable both within and outside of YouTube. Videos often appear on the first page of search engines, and are a proven method of leap-frogging your competition to the top of the search results page. The fact that Google owns YouTube can’t be overlooked.
To make your video more findable, you’ll want to focus on three key areas:
What Skills Do I Need?
In order to create videos that are going to be worth your audience’s time, you (or a team) are going to need to have a solid handle on at least these 5 areas:
These basic components are in the DNA of nearly every video that spreads online.
Make Video Descriptions with Long Tail Keywords
In the past, if you had a channel dedicated to travel tips, you might create video descriptions with short keywords such as “travel,” “traveling”, “airfare” and “destinations”. Now, there’s much more of a focus on long tail keywords, which mimic the way people actually search for things online.
When posting video featuring your tips to get good travel deals, you might use phrases like “How to save money on a hotel” or “Easy ways to get the cheapest flights,” assuming your video covers those topics. In addition to using those keywords naturally in the video’s description, it’s useful to incorporate them into the “channel keywords” section of your profile. This could help your video rank more highly in Google, which may result in more viewers.
