Great to see you here Rebecca
And can I just say, anyone interested in eSafety should follow @esafety_officer on twitter. Rebecca has a talent of finding all the best resources and information.
Sounds like an interesting event yesterday @GrumbleDook. My invite from the powers that be must have been lost in the post. Next time...

Have you thought about how odd your online life is?
This amusing film was made as a trailer for an ENO production, but it makes the point very nicely about facebook and twitter and has become a useful resource.

A new suite of resources are now available for practitioners working with carers and adoptive parents. These materials look at general internet safety messages, alongside additional material covering the specifics risks this group of children and young people face online - such as contact from birth relatives.
· Filmed modules - with interviews and advice from leading experts in the field, carers and adoptive parents.
Materials are available now and can be downloaded from the Parents tab in the Resources area of the website.
It's changed again.
Newest version now available here:

Recent Ofcom statistics highlighted that four in ten children aged 5-15 have a mobile phone of some kind and three in ten children aged 5-15 have a smartphone. Mobile phone downloads and apps are very popular among young people and are easily available.
There have been many cases in the news over the past year reporting high charges incurred due to in-app purchasing. While a lot of popular apps are free to download, this does not mean they won't charge you later on, and many games are free up to a point, before then asking for a payment in order to continue onto the next level or to access additional features.
There are also a number of services available that allow users to sign up via their mobile phone number to download ringtones, music, video and other content. These are very popular amongst young people, but in signing up for a service, it is possible to inadvertently sign up for a subscription and rather than just paying one charge for access to new content, they could be charged repeatedly.
Childnet has worked with PhonepayPlus, the premium rate regulator to develop two new hot topics for parents about apps and premium rate services including tips for how to avoid extra charges as well as advice for teenagers on apps and premium rate services.
