Social media firms could face fines of up to £17 million under new laws aimed at guaranteeing people the “right to be forgotten” online.

Companies such as Facebook and Twitter will be required to delete information on children and adults when asked, new laws stipulate, as people look to erase social media posts from their childhood.

The Data Protection Bill will make it easier for people to control how firms use their personal details.

And the information watchdog would have the power to levy fines of up to £17 million for any breaches, according to proposals.

The bill will also require people to give explicit consent for their information to be collected online, rather than companies relying on pre-selected tick boxes.

Guarantees under new legislation:

  • Allow people to ask for their personal data held by companies to be erased.
  • Enable parents and guardians to give consent for their child’s data to be used.
  • Expand the definition of personal data to include IP addresses, internet cookies and DNA;
  • Make it easier and free for individuals to require an organisation reveal the personal data it holds on them.
  • Create new criminal offences to deter organisations from intentionally or recklessly creating situations where someone could be identified from anonymised data.

The bill was first announced in the Queen’s Speech in July, and will move through the Houses of Parliament when MPs return from the summer break in September.

Along with new powers, the legislation will bring the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation into domestic law.

Digital Minister Matt Hancock said: “Our measures are designed to support businesses in their use of data, and give consumers the confidence that their data is protected and those who misuse it will be held to account.

“The new Data Protection Bill will give us one of the most robust, yet dynamic, set of data laws in the world.

“It will give people more control over their data, require more consent for its use, and prepare Britain for Brexit.”

The Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham said she was pleased the Government had recognised the “importance of data protection”.

This Will Make You Check Your Child’s Phone Regularly!

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #BreakingNews #MetroNews #USA #Florida  #London #Predator #SnpChat #SocialMedia #ChildSafety #Predator

As a parent, Its your obligation to keep your children safe, but just how safe are they within your four walls?

Modern technology has created a new way for predators to infiltrate you home without physically breaking in. This article highlights the importance of checking your child’s phone as a predator could be a few clicks away from taking your child.

A Florida mother posted SnapChat messages that her 10 year old daughter received from a man suspected of being a predator.  He was  gradually trying to groom her into sending  nude pictures of herself.

At first the girl thought he was asking for selfies, but the man replied saying: ‘I really want some other kinds of pics. Like you’ll be in it…but not just your face.’

He gave his name as Daniel Foreal, but it is not known if this is his real name and could not be independently verified.

She told him that she was just 10 and that she couldn’t do such a thing but he said ‘it will be our secret.’

The mother found out so she posed as her daughter to message the man.

She discovered that the man had originally contacted her daughter on Live.Me, a video platform, after he approached her asking her to do a dare and saying they were ‘naughty’.

I was horrified and I know my daughter will not have been the only one he has targeted,’ she said.

‘My daughter is really mature for her age and she knows to tell me if someone has contacted her.

‘She has Facebook and other social media, because all her friends do and they play games together. We make sure that it is all on lockdown and if someone adds her, she tells me.

‘When I saw her messages I felt sick. One person had sent her a picture of his penis. Another person she was talking to said he was a 13-year-old and sent a picture he found on Google. He asked to see her tummy but she is too clever and did not fall for that.

‘I made this public to show what these people say to young girls and to make sure that “Daniel” does not do this to anyone else’s child. I check my daughter’s social media but some parents might not know who their child is speaking to.’

With the mother in charge of the phone, she continued messaging to see what he wanted her 10-year-old girl to do.

He says: ‘It’s gana be fun. Like I’m gana tell you exactly what I want to see and then you show me (sic).’

The man then tells her ‘I want you to lift up your shirt and bra and take a picture’, before promising not to tell anyone.

The mother replied: ‘I don’t have a bra. They’re for older girls’ and he responded by saying ‘Then just lift up your shirt and take a pic.’

She posted screenshots from the conversation as well as a social media profile of the man and a photo he sent her.

The post read: ‘So this dirty bastard thinks it is OK to message young girls asking for dirty pictures! NOT ON MY F**kIN WATCH! wrong momma to f**k with… sent a message to alllllll your friends list, the local sheriff in Florida, added to the Florida selling groups! I hope you get hung, drawn & f**kin quarted!

‘Anybody wishing to message or add on Snapchat go right ahead, please share… I know he is in Florida but horrible dirty scum bag!

‘BTW this is me messaging him pretending to be my girl.’

She says she has reported it to the man’s local sheriff in Florida and made a report to Child Exploitation & Online Protection centre.

She also linked to a Facebook profile of a man called Daniel Foreal but the account now appears to have been deactivated.

Nicole Scherzinger: “Social Media Gives Me The Heebie-Frickin’-Jeebies”.

#WeGotYourBack #WeGotItCovered #EntertainmentNews #Music #PussycatDolls #SocialMediaAnxiety

The former Pussycat Doll is wary of sharing too much of her life online

The former Pussycat Doll revealed that the thought of posting too much of her life online and being misinterpreted gives her anxiety.

The 37 year old said: “Social media gives me the heebie-frickin’-jeebies. It gives me so much anxiety. It’s unnatural for me.


“I’m protective of what I want to share, I’ll take a million pictures and stare at them and figure out a filter – then I think: ‘Do I even want to share this?’

“Because I know if my big toe is in the wrong place it’s gonna be on the cover of the papers.

“It takes up too much frickin’ time and then I end up not posting anything and it sucks.”

Lewis Hamilton’s ex-girlfriend has 5.4million Twitter followers, and she insisted she would love to be able to share more with them.

But despite her social media anxiety, Nicole is trying not to overthink it all.
