Livestreaming and video-chatting

Snapshot 2

The NSPCC and LGfL recently conducted the largest ever UK survey of children’s experiences online. We received almost 40,000 responses from children aged 7-16 who shared their experiences and understandings of the risks they face online. Our second snapshot, exploring the findings of this survey, focuses on children’s experiences of livestreaming and video-chatting. These new online tools have exploded in popularity in the past couple of years, but their live and unpredictable nature can pose risks to children.
