Tech News Desk – Often parents share pictures of children on social media. But in this country, if the parents separate the child, they are punished. A new bill has been passed in France to give children better privacy over their photos or videos. It would ban French parents from sharing pictures of their children on social media. The aim of introducing this vine is to ’empower parents’ and make kids feel that they are the only ones in control of the pictures they take.
No one else will have the right on his photographs. The bill has been passed by the National Assembly and will allow courts to ban parents from posting pictures of their children on social media. It has been said that if one of the parents shares the picture online then both will be held jointly responsible.
Apart from this, it has also been said that before posting anything on social media, parents will have to take the consent of their child. Parents will be banned from posting anything online if they disagree. The bill comes at a time when sharing is on the rise, putting children’s privacy at risk. Most photo sharing is being seen on Instagram.
MP Bruno Studer, who represented the bill, said pictures of children could be ‘misused for child pornography’ or ‘could lead to bullying in a school environment’. They said they have seen an average of 1,300 photos of a 13-year-old on the Internet, which could threaten their privacy. 50% of images used in child pornography forums are taken from accounts used by parents on social media.
