United Kingdom plans bar on Facebook likes for kids

  • Social media firms will be compelled to comply with the ICO code or face a hefty fine

Facebook and other social media firms should alert children if their parent or carer is monitoring their online activity, under proposed guidelines to improve child internet safety in the UK.

This comes as part of a proposed ban on so-called "nudge" techniques on children's profiles that encourage them to give out more data and turn off privacy measures. Examples includes features such as Facebook "likes" or "streaks" on Snapchat, which are a reward for when people send photos to people frequently on the app. A Snapchat streak involves two friends sending each other direct "snaps" on consecutive days.

The code, which begins its consultation process on Monday and is hailed as an global benchmark, suggests 16 standards that online services must meet. It applies to companies that offer services in the United Kingdom, even if they are based outside the country.

The Information Commissioner's Office has compiled the draft code, which says "nudge" techniques such as Likes and Snapchat streaks that are used to keep under-18s online longer should not be allowed.

The code also calls for "high privacy" settings to be on by default and "robust age-verification mechanisms".

Men's beards have more germs than dog fur
Seven of the men sampled were found to be harboring in their beards microbes that posed a threat to human health. Almost half of the beards tested in the study carried germs that posed serious risk to human health.

"High privacy" must be the default setting for children using social media platforms, which includes disabling geolocation tools and targeted advertising as standard, unless there is a compelling reason not to.

"This is the connected generation".

Elizabeth Denham, the United Kingdom information commissioner, said: "This is the connected generation".

"In an age when children learn how to use a tablet before they can ride a bike, making sure they have the freedom to play, learn and explore in the digital world is of paramount importance", she said in a statement. "This code does that".

The standards will be under consultation until 31 May, when a final draft will be presented to Parliament, with the hope to push the code into effect before the end of the year.
