European Commission Releases Findings on Implementation of Safer Social Networking Principles For EU

The European Commission has published findings of a  report on the implementation of the Safer Social Networking Principles for the EU. Testers examined the following social media: Arto, Bebo, Facebook, Giovani, Hyves, IRC-Galleria, Myspace, Nasza-Klasa, Netlog, One, Rate, SchuelerVZ (Vznet Netzwerke), Tuenti and Zap.

In general, while the Commission finds that social media has made good progress since last year in complying with the principles, such as privacy settings and ensuring that inappropriate material for minors is kept from them, sometimes information about how to set privacy functions is still hard to find on some sites.

Read the summary and individual reports here.
