While at the World Economic Forum
in Davos this morning, I had an important discussion with Sheryl Sandberg
, Chief Operating Officer of Facebook; we talked about protecting children, and new data protection rules.
One of my priorities under the Digital Agenda is to ensure that children use new technologies in the safest way possible to learn, play, communicate and be creative. Facebook is already one of the parties to the EU's Safer Social Networking Principles
. But keeping children safe online is a shared responsibility, for all sectoral players, wherever they lie along the value chain - they all have a role to play, depending on how their devices or services engage with children as users.
