Children, risk and safety on the internet

This chapter analyses the increasing variety of internet access and use experienced by children in Europe. Locations, platforms, experience and the embeddedness of the internet in everyday life are accounted for in order to provide a full picture of the first and the most immediate socio-cultural layer in which children's agency is exercised. Insofar as individuals' use of technologies is socially shaped within family and peer relations, this chapter investigates the relationship between place of access, online experience and frequency of use of the internet, within the family's wider technological culture. It examines cross-national variations in patterns of usage and provides a classification of countries.

Keywords:   Internet access, Internet use, Domestication, Privatisation of access and use, Cross-national comparisons
