Expert evaluation of e-safety measures on Ketnet.be based on the Safer Social Network Principles for the EU

7 feb 2014 /

This paper reports the results of the expert evaluation of the Ketnet.be website. Ketnet.be is a VRT-owned website for children up to the age of 12. The evaluation was based on the methodology employed during the second assessment of the Safer Social Networking Principles for the EU and had a specific focus on the e-safety measures implemented on the website. On the website, which is built around the content and programmes created by Ketnet, all children (registered or non-registered users) can perform a wide range of interactive activities such as watching videos, re-playing programmes originally broadcasted on TV, playing online games and doing quizzes. Children can also choose to become members of the Ketnet online community. In general, Ketnet.be provides effective and user-friendly e-safety features on their website ranging from specific e-safety information available in different formats (quizzes, videos, etc.) to strong privacy settings and easy-to-use mechanisms to report inappropriate content. The age-appropriateness as well as the user-friendliness of the available e-safety content and features of the website is also discussed in this report.
