In Britain, they are ready to introduce new rules for social networks

The Minister of Health of Britain, Jeremy Hunt, threatened with the introduction of new rules for social networks, if they do not provide stronger protection of children online. In particular, according to the minister, social networks do not pay attention to how the use of their services affects the well-being of children.

"I am worried that your companies seem to indulge situations where hundreds of users violate your own rules regarding the minimum age for registration," - Hunt said. "I am afraid that you collectively turn a blind eye to the problem that a whole generation of children is prematurely exposed to harmful effects of social networks," - he said.

The minister did not say what measures could be taken with regard to social networks. However, Hunt gave the companies a deadline before the end of April: they must offer ways to reduce the time spent by children in the social network.
