A survey has found that the main online danger as perceived by young people is video-sharing on sites such as YouTube. The poll by EU Kids Online – called ‘In their own words: what’s worrying young people online’ – showed that 29% of children aged nine to 16 years are frightened by violent content, including filmed scenes of self-harming, uploaded online. Other online content such as amateur porn (22%), is another a major concern. The poll also found that social networks are worrying young people not only because of online bullying and racism but also due to strangers making friend requests, then engaging in aggressive behaviour and harassment. Boys are more likely to feel intimidated by violent or explicit videos, while girls reported feeling more afraid of interactions with people they don’t know.
