A pesquisa, realizada pela empresa especialista em identidades cibernáuticas Garlik, entrevistou 1,030 pais e 1 mil crianças.

Entre os entrevistadas com idades entre 8 e 12 anos, 23% admitem frequentar redes sociais como o Facebook, o Bebo e o MySpace, apesar de existirem restrições aos menores de 13 ou 14 anos.

A equipa sugere que se a percentagem for aplicada ao número de crianças dessa faixa etária, existente no Reino Unido segundo o censo de 2001, o resultado seria de 750 mil crianças frequentam esse tipo de sites em todo o país.

A pesquisa indica ainda que 26% das crianças entrevistadas afirmaram que consideram amigos virtuais os estranhos que conhecem pela internet e 66% disponibilizam informações pessoais como número de telemóvel e morada da escola nos seus perfis publicados nos sites.

No entanto, de acordo com a sondagem, o comportamento das crianças e adolescentes na internet não passa despercebido aos pais.

Entre os entrevistados, 72% afirmaram ‘espiar’ os filhos online – 25% lê o perfil das crianças nas redes sociais para identificar se estão a ser abordadas por estranhos e 26% criaram um perfil próprio nos sites para poder controlar os filhos.

Segundo Tom Illube, director da Garlik, as redes sociais devem levar mais sério as suas políticas de restrições de idade para «aliviar os receios reais dos pais».

«As crianças estão na vanguarda do fenómeno dos sites de redes sociais, usando-os da mesma maneira que outras gerações usaram o telefone» , disse Illube.

Segundo o director da Garlik, ao contrário dos adultos, que são mais «argutos», as crianças tendem a ser mais relaxadas sobre as informações pessoais que disponibilizam online.

«Isso não seria um problema se elas estivessem num círculo mais controlado, mas quando estão num ambiente onde se relacionam com pessoas muito mais velhas que elas, deve ter-se bastante precaução e cuidado» , disse.

Illube destaca ainda que os pais são ocupados e não conseguem monitorizar a actividade dos filhos o tempo todo.

20% of British children are friendly to strangers on the Internet
One in five children interviewed for a poll in the UK said that already met a stranger who had known only through the Internet


The poll, conducted by the company specializes in identity cibernáuticas Garlik, interviewed 1030 parents and 1 thousand children.

Among the interviewees aged between 8 and 12 years, 23% admit attend social networks such as Facebook, Bebo and MySpace, though there are restrictions on minors, 13 or 14 years.

The team suggests that if the percentage is applied to the number of children of that age group in the UK, according to the 2001 census, the result would be 750 thousand children attend such sites throughout the country.

The research also indicates that 26% of children interviewed said they consider online friends to strangers who know the Internet and 66% provide personal information such as mobile phone number and address of the school in their profiles published on the websites.

However, according to the poll, the behaviour of children and adolescents not go unnoticed on the Internet to parents.

Among the interviewees, 72% said 'spying' their children online - 25% read the profile of children in social networks to identify whether they are being approached by strangers and 26% have created a profile itself in the sites to monitor their children.

According to Tom Illube, director of Garlik, social networks should take more seriously their policy of restrictions of age to 'real alleviate the fears of parents.

"Children are at the forefront of the phenomenon of social networking sites, using them the same way as other generations used the telephone, 'said Illube.

According to the Director of Garlik, unlike the adults that are more 'argutos' children tend to be more relaxed about personal information that provide online.

'That would not be a problem if they were in a circle more controlled, but when they are in an environment where they relate to people much older that they should take up much caution and care ", he said.

Illube also emphasised that parents are busy and can not monitor the activities of their children all the time.

Child Rapist gets 13 year sentence

By Louise Dunderdale
A FORMER Burger King manager has been sentenced to 13 years in prison after being found guilty of raping a girl and 16 counts of sexual assault over a period of seven years.

Ehmad Alguet, 44, of Esmonde Way in Canford Heath, Poole, was found guilty by a majority verdict of 10 to two on each of the 17 counts by the jury at Bournemouth Crown Court yesterday.

The jury took eight hours of deliberation to reach their verdict.

Judge Christopher Harvey Clark QC said Alguet had "habitually committed indecent assaults" on the victim.

The 16 sexual assaults were specimen charges, and Alguet's behaviour had been covert.

"This repulsive and disgusting behaviour culminated in an act of rape when she was 14," the judge said.

He said Alguet also had a "perverted obsession" with internet websites showing sexual activity with young girls.

Alguet's behaviour was also contrary to Islam, which he professed to follow, said the judge in court.

Earlier in the trial, Alguet, who has no previous convictions, had broken down in tears on the stand as he denied abusing and raping the girl.

He also told the court he had looked at illegal porn sites because he was trying to trace missing toddler Madeleine McCann.

The judge sentenced Alguet to 10 years for the count of rape and three years for the other 16 counts and said Alguet would serve half the term in prison and the remainder on licence, and will be placed on the sex offenders register for life.

The judge thanked the jury, prosecution and defence and translator for their work, and asked for his thanks to be passed to the officers in the case.
