    ABSTRACT: The aim of this paper is to analyse regulation and self-regulation of the images used by children on the most widely used social network sites in Spain. To reach our goal we have studied the related literature, especially ‘The Safer Social Networking Principles for the European Union’ voluntarily adopted by the industry in 2009, and have made an exploratory analysis to compare the social network sites (SNS) Tuenti and Facebook. We conclude that, in the case of child images, it is difficult for SNS to control all the content and this means that self-regulation is more focused on children as actors.

    ABSTRACT: The open nature of the social network sites facilitates many opportunities for children but also makes them vulnerable for abuses from various parties. Obscenity, hate speech, and indecent contents that are not suitable for children are very common in the social network sites. The Malaysian, Spanish and Australian government regulate these contents as they regulate the contents in other traditional mass media. For the purpose of regulatory compliance most social networks do not allow children under 13-14 to access their services. However, the technology that controls this restriction can easily be evaded and the service providers are still uncertain how to label contents appropriate to child access. Both Governments and corporations agree that control is insufficient and so companies embark on self-regulation of themselves through Codes of Conduct. The objective of this paper is to compare how far the regulation and self-regulation protect children in social networks sites and what need to be done to improve the effectiveness of regulation. The paper compares social networks in Malaysia, Spain and Australia to find strengths and opportunities that could enrich regulation of social networks in those countries.
