This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. It's hard not to fear for our children when we see headlines about Facebook bullies and online blackmail. But Sonia Livingstone argues that we need to balance our reactions, and not necessarily impose more restrictions.

Sonia Livingstone is a professor in the Department of Media and Communications at LSE, and author or editor of seventeen books including, most recently, Children, Risk and Safety Online (edited, with Leslie Haddon and Anke Görzig, 2012), Media Regulation (with Peter Lunt, 2012), and Meanings of Audiences (edited, with Richard Butsch, 2013). Taking a comparative, critical and contextualised approach, Sonia's research examines the opportunities and risks afforded by digital and online technologies in a range of contexts. She directs a 33-country network, EU Kids Online, funded by the EC's Safer Internet Programme, and serves on the Executive Board of the UK's Council for Child Internet Safety, for which she is the Evidence Champion.

At TEDxExeter 2014 our speakers and performers connected us with other worlds. Our talks exposed corruption in big business, shared effective approaches to tackling social inequality and gave a voice to those whose human rights are under threat. We explored the impact of fast changing technologies on all our lives. We journeyed through fire and forest to frozen landscapes. We were challenged to consider worlds of extremes, cutting edge controversies and risky opportunities.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
