Social media consultancy Naturally Social has launched a Facebook group offering parents information and advice to help them keep their children safe online.

The page was launched by the Corsham-based firm on Tuesday (February 11) – Safer Internet Day. It was one of hundreds of initiatives launched in the UK, Europe and beyond pledging their commitment to promote the safe, sensible and positive use of digital technology for children and young people.

‘The Parent’s Social Media Hub’ is aimed initially at Wiltshire-based parents and will be a non-judgemental, safety-focused, community group where no question is too small.

“When talking to parents, I know the biggest pain point for them is actually understanding how each platform works," said Naturally Social founder Natalie Sherman.

"Where to find safety features and settings and knowing the language to use when speaking to their children about social media. It’s overwhelming. This needs to be addressed and we want to support parents to have conversations about staying safe online.”
