With the news that a father in Northern Ireland is suing Facebook over suggestive photos of his 12 year old girl posted on the site, the question of whose responsibility it is to ensure that children and young people are safe online is getting more heated.

Is it the responsibility of the makers of websites, the parents, or the education system? Or should we expect children to be web savvy enough to not put themselves in danger?

Leading the discussion with a talk followed by questions will be Duncan Hodgson, someone who works in the public sector and does work around promoting positive activities for young people.

He’s involved in the Plings project and rubothered.co.uk, which he designed, developed and has maintained since its original content. The site was recently shortlisted for Best Website of the Radio Wave Culture & Lifestyle Awards.

You can find Duncan on Twitter at @TawdryMe.

As usual doors open at 6:30, and there’ll be an emphasis on discussion and participation.

Want to suggest a topic for a future meetup? Either get in touch with us on Twitter, get involved in our LinkedIn group or our Facebook page.
