Just wondering how this year went with everyone? I noticed a lot of international support from all over the world getting involved on social media to promote the day. Great theme as well, standing up against online hate and abuse while promoting kindness and acceptance.

I liked the report about young people and digital wellbeing. From the numbers there seems to be a lot of kids who think their parents may be addicted to their phones which is worrying. Good to see a report that looks at things from young people's perspective. Worth a look. www.cybersmile.org/wp-content/uploads/Digital-Wellbeing-2020-The-Cybersmile-Foundation.pdf

We all made a point of re-posting/tweeting messages for the day. It's great to spread some positive vibes into the digital landscape every now and then!

Yes, I saw that too. I've often seen parents glued to their phones ignoring kids or just not giving them full attention. By definition, this kind of behaviour is addictive as far as I am concerned. Seems to me a lot of parents are missing out on the whole parental experience, but what concerns me most is what the kids are missing out from.

Yes, addiction can be very harmful and just the amount of time you spend looking at a screen can be a problem, never mind what kind of content you are looking at.

This is double edged sword Jules92, too much time staring at screen and toxic content, not a good combination.
