Major Tech companies sign up to 11 Principles to counter Child Abuse

Some of the large Social Media Platforms (FacebookAppleGoogle and Twitter) have signed up in the launch of the 5 Country Ministerial declaration of 11 Principles to make the internet safer.

These principles make it clear that they will take further steps that will make their users safer, and should be applauded. It steers clear of the current debate about end-to-end encryption (more to come of that later) but is a strong move in the right direction.
