The rise of YouTube, Twitch, Instagram, and other platforms, have opened up ways of making money that didn’t exist before.  

Now users are able to get opinions, views, and advice across to people all over the world, simply from your computer or laptop.  

There is no minimum age to these kinds of activities. And people that make a success of YouTube can be as young as primary age.  

However, this opens up opportunities for those who prey on these channels of under aged people. They encourage them and ultimately try to gain their trust.  

This requires those in the educational and safeguarding sphere to be able to give good advice to keep them safe whilst pursuing these online objectives.  

The Safer Internet Centre has produced a page dedicated to mitigating harm for those engaging in these online activities.
