Children Audience

In this instance, the digital storytelling work is aimed at audiences of children and young people aged 8+.

Social media, such as Twitter and Facebook, are therefore not appropriate platforms to create and publish work on.

It’s essential to think carefully about what you link to and what content restriction settings you can control – if you can’t control what content your online audience might see when interacting with what you create, e.g. what adverts they might see – don’t publish it.

For example – I created a YouTube playlist of some of Gerda’s favourite artists. I linked directly to each artist’s official Vevo channel. I turned on content restrictions in YouTube and I viewed each video carefully for inappropriate or over-sexualised content and performances.
