The Safer Social Networking Principles for the EU have been developed by social networking services providers in consultation with the European Commission, as part of its Safer Internet Plus Programme, and a number of NGOs, to provide good practice recommendations for the providers of social networking and other user interactive sites, to enhance the safety of children and young people using their services.

The document outlines the principles by which SNS providers should be guided as they seek to help minimise potential harm to children and young people, and recommends a range of good practice approaches which can help achieve those principles.
