This Ted Talk was given by Dr. Sonia Livingstone. It's hard not to fear for our children when we see headlines about Facebook bullies and online blackmail. But Sonia Livingstone argues that we need to balance our reactions, and not necessarily impose more restrictions. Sonia Livingstone is a professor in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE, and author or editor of seventeen books including, most recently, Children, Risk and Safety Online (edited, with Leslie Haddon and Anke Görzig, 2012), Media Regulation (with Peter Lunt, 2012), and Meanings of Audiences (edited, with Richard Butsch, 2013). Taking a comparative, critical and contextualised approach, Sonia's research examines the opportunities and risks afforded by digital and online technologies in a range of contexts. She directs a 33-country network, EU Kids Online, funded by the EC's Safer Internet Programme, and serves on the Executive Board of the UK's Council for Child Internet Safety, for which she is the Evidence Champion.
