"the principal (monthly) periodical dealing with contemporary issues" Sir Mark Potter P
‘As a society, we’re exposing ever younger children more and more in broadcast media and on the internet, by filming them for “science entertainment” programmes and by “sharenting” on social media sites.The government recently announced a new Data Protection Bill that will give people the right to force social media companies to delete their personal data (the right to be forgotten).
Young people may therefore grow up in a world which already knows a lot about them that they have not chosen to share. A child may grow to regret their exposure in the media. We shouldn’t put all our eggs in the basket of the so-called “right to be forgotten”. By the time a child is older, it may be too late.’
