BBC: YouTube child protection mechanism ‘failing’

BBC: YouTube child protection mechanism ‘failing’. “YouTube’s child protection mechanism is breaking down, according to some of the company’s volunteer watchdogs. There’s a constant anxiety that those seeking to abuse or groom young children will use social media to reach them – and YouTube is aware of the problem. The video-sharing site has a special network of volunteers, called Trusted Flaggers, who help identify worrisome posts and comments on the network.”
