UK Gov’t Wants Facebook To Feature Child Safety Button

judgecorp writes “Harriet Harman, the deputy leader of the Labour Party, has said that UK government ministers are ‘taking action’ to get Facebook to add a British child protection button (called CEOP) to its site. The move comes after the UK’s Daily Mail withdrew allegations that teenagers on Facebook are continually pestered — though Facebook is still considering suing the paper. The campaign apparently ignores Facebook’s assertion that it already has better child protection in place and the CEOP button would be limited to the UK.”
