Britain to Become 'World's Safest Online Place' with New Gov Proposals

11 October 2017, 06:01 | Edward Lowe

Facebook and Twitter could be asked to pay for action against the "undeniable suffering" social media can cause, the culture secretary has said.

Plans drawn up by Bradley, would target cyber-bullying, trolling and under-age access in a bid to make the online world safer. Safety messages will also be built into online platforms.

In the past year, nearly one fifth of 12- to 15-year-olds say they have encountered something online that they found "worrying or nasty in some way" and 64% of 13- to 17-year-olds have seen offensive images or videos. Earlier this year, it introduced new legislation to better protect citizens' online privacy.

Bradley told the BBC that despite manifesto promises to regulate the internet, legislating would take "far too long" and a "collaborative approach" would be more suitable.

Turkey urges USA to end visa suspension, summons envoy
The United States lambasted the Turkish government for the "wrongful arrest" arrest of Brunson and has been vying for his release. The Hurriyet daily reported the individual wanted by prosecutors is now taking sanctuary inside the Istanbul US consulate.

While the internet had been an "amazing force for good", the minister added, it had caused undeniable suffering as well as a harmful place for children and vulnerable people.

The government also wants to see a new body, similar to the UK Council for Child Internet Safety, to consider all aspects of internet safety.

"Behavior that is unacceptable in real life is unacceptable on a computer screen".

"We welcome close collaboration between industry, experts and government to address this important issue".

"We've liked what Kevin has been able to do within our offense when he's been in there", Hue Jackson said in a team statement. He completed five of 11 passes for 118 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens while Kizer recovered from a migraine.

David Wright, director of the UK Safer Internet Centre said, "As the national centre dedicated to making the UK the safest place in the world to be online, the UK Safer Internet Centre, a partnership of three charities - Childnet, the Internet Watch Foundation and South West Grid for Learning - welcomes any piece of work that helps deliver this objective".

"Young people face a unique set of risks when using the internet and it is important any strategy recognises the challenges they face online and requires industry to act to protect them". "And they need to explain what transparency information they will be asking social media companies to provide".

Plans are being finalized by the United Kingdom government to introduce a new tax on social media companies to help finance a clampdown on the growing dangers of online abuse, as well as raise awareness to the problems caused. According to media reports, United Kingdom will publish a formal proposal on Wednesday for a levy on social media firms and internet providers to help fund its online safety strategy, created to tackle bullying, abuse and other risks for children and vulnerable users.
