It was recently noted on Our Facebook page that our videos there can be followed by other videos which are inappropriate for children, and which play automatically when our video stops.
Kate Pearson – a woman of great worldly wisdom and a whiz with tech- luckily had the answer to why this happens and outlined a way in which you can make the automatic video content Facebook shows you safer.
It did raise serious issues though, and we would hate to be responsible, however inadvertently, for our children viewing inappropriate content.
I am now suggesting that if you prefer not to use Facebook, you go to our Glowblog and sign up for Updates. I am now able to put links to our videos on there and cut out the need for Facebook.
The blog sends its contents to our Facebook page so you can continue to use it, if you are happy doing so. Please just be aware that Facebook sends you videos based on what you have watched on your device, and if it has contained any adult content it assumes you will be happy to see more. If older kids or adults use your device think about following Kate’s advice about changing the settings on Ad Preferences on Facebook.
Many thanks to Kate for sharing her knowledge on this subject. I hope the new video links on the blog will make it a safer alternative for parents. Please let us know what you think!
