It is necessary to conduct a study based on social surveys or analysis of a large selection of accounts on social networking sites to find out how content that is considered undesirable is viewed by children and adolescents of different age groups, specifying one of the following areas:
— What children and teenagers think of games and movies classified 18+ and what impact this type of content has on their emotional state. Make a list of the most traumatic movies or games classified 18+, a list of films or games that teenagers think have been erroneously included in the 18+ category and a list of films or games that teenagers think should have been included in the 18+ category but were NOT.
— What sites/categories of sites they consider unacceptable for children of their age and/or younger and why. We recommend taking Kaspersky Lab’s Parental Control categories as a basis.
