8 enfants sur 10 ont des photos en ligne : craintes sur la vie privée

Internet, Web 2.0 Une étude réalisée par AVG a remarqué qu'environ 81 % des jeunes enfants sont déjà exposés sur Internet dans les pays occidentaux. Cette étude a consisté à interroger plus de deux mille mamans (en Allemagne, Royaume_uni, Italie, France, Espagne, Canada, États-Unis, Australie, Nouvelle-Zélande et Japon). À peine nés, un tiers des bébés sont affichés en ligne et un quart avant même la naissance (on parle des échographies).

Cette constatation doit mettre en garde les parents concernant les problèmes de vie privée et de rappeler d'utiliser les paramètres de contrôle présents sur les sites sociaux. Le danger provenant des étrangers est le même en ligne que dans le monde réel.

A study by Melbourne-based AVG found an average of 81 percent of toddlers in 10 western countries have a digital presence; 92 percent in America, followed by 91 percent in New Zealand and 84 percent in Australia and Canada.

A third of have their photos online at just a few weeks of age, while a quarter appear on the Web before they are even born in the form of ante-natal scans, the company said.

"It's a sobering thought," said managing director Peter Cameron. "The vast majority of children today have online presence by the time they are two years old -- a presence that will be built on throughout their whole lives."

"It reinforces the need for parents to be aware of the they have set on their social network profiles. Otherwise, you may be sharing your baby’s picture not only with your friends and family but with the whole online world."

The company said parents should keep tight settings to guard against identity theft or unauthorised use of the pictures which could dog the child as it grows up.

"They've got to have (settings) so they are only sharing with family and close friends and it's kept within close confines, otherwise it can be picked up and used anywhere," said spokesman Lloyd Borrett.

"Stranger danger applies online just as much as it does in the real world."

AVG, which has software to protect against identity theft, surveyed 2,200 mothers with Web access and children under two in Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Canada, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
