Facebook executives will reportedly meet with police regarding child safety issues.
London, England (WiredPRNews.com) – Facebook executives are expected to meet with police regarding child safety issues on Monday. As reported by CNN, the social networking site execs will discuss concerns about child safety amid criticism by child experts and authorities in the UK, which suggest the site should implement more controls for the protection of children against bullying and sexual abuse.
As noted in the report, Jim Gamble chief executive of the London-based Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center (Ceop), proposes Facebook install a “Click Ceop” panic button. A spokesperson for Ceop is quoted by CNN as stating of the issue, “We have been trying to engage with Facebook for some time, this meeting is happening after a long build-up… More and more children are using Facebook and a panic button would allow them to report potential threats directly. We have experts who can respond immediately.”
Facebook is further quoted in the report as stating of the meeting, “We will be discussing many issues, there are lots of initiatives.”
