- Images of children and young people online
- Horsfall, Briony
- The Internet has become a popular communication tool for, and about, children and young people. Many children and young people participate in social networking websites and blogs, and develop their own web pages. Community organisations and businesses, such as sporting groups, involved with children and young people also use the Internet to promote activities and services. These Internet communication activities can include photos or visual recordings of children and young people. This Resource Sheet provides information about safety and good practice when images of children and young people are displayed online. The display of images of children and young people on the Internet requires careful considerations. Firstly, there are legal obligations for Internet users who post images of children and young people on the Internet. Secondly, good Internet practices aim to enhance the safety of children and young people, irrespective of legal responsibilities.
