I just wish the media would stop refering to this woman as an expert. She knows nothing about programming, encryption standards, hacking, or anything IT related. I'd venture as far as saying she might even be a Apple user, But she most definitely is a desperate housewife who studied something nobody wants, and now want to create a niche for herself in order to drum up business. It's like that Kolisi rugby player's wife, who Capitec started using as she gave tips on how to work on a budget, they just never mentioned it was the millions a rugby player earned.

Well, what is your social media LAW expertise?

Don't you just love Pr0n? It's like a cockroach. No matter what you do, it will always survive and flourish because people have needs and are basically skanky.

I just wish the media would stop giving this woman a platform on which to spew her uninformed rhetoric. She might be educated in law, but she has no clue as to what is happening in the real world.

So what's your point. Elon Musk makes a lot more than she does, so does my line of reasoning change anything? No it does not. Making a lot of money does not lend one credibility, as can be seen by the fallout of the government capture investigations against Zooooooma and the Guptas.
She does her job. She does it successfully. You don't like it, your problem. She is probably experienced in areas others would have no clue about. The fact that you bring Zuma and Gupta into this.... well you need help maybe.

She is a Social Media Law Specialist. It is because of people that don't understand how these things works she is good at what she does.

Social media law specialist, not social media software platform specialist.
There should not be bias between whatsapp and Telegram, like she should not have bias between android and apple.
My understanding is that her expertise starts at the level above that.

I have been to events where she was a speaker, she knows what she is talking about when it comes to law. Let me put it this way, I believe she will school most peeps here.
Don't be silly!! She's no match for the myBB experts!!

What does android and apple have to do with the price of porn.

She understands the impact and dangers of social media and has experience in the field. It is not about platform. She spoken about twitter, Facebook any thing that can be a danger to specially kids.

I get the feeling you are upset because she mentioned Telegram and something that parents have the right to know about.

Judging by that Tweet: no Emma, you haven't. You weren't there for the classics like meatspin, lemon party, goatse and the like. You. Know. Nothing.
The term: 'my dear sweet summer child' is an apt description of this woman.

You shouldn't be giving your child access to the internet if you don't trust them. And if you don't trust your children then you have bigger problems in your life as a parent than some settings on their phones.

What this woman said has been applicable to the internet ever since it was started. People are always a couple of clicks from the dregs of humanity. Assuming you can isolate your child from that is simply delusional.

You are reading an "article" by the sensational media. Maybe just go look at and see exactly what she is doing.

I don't care what else she is doing, what she said in the article and tweet was stupid. It reminds me of what you would see on a pamphlet that a Jehovah's witness would force you to take.

It is like saying you shouldn't buy your child a new graphics card because they might try and mine crypto on it.

More like, you should buy your child a workstation card so they can't mine crypto instead of a GTX or RTX or whatever.

"Don't buy your child a PC with a graphics card that can mine crypto since cryptocurrency is used to facilitate human trafficking."

Although in this case, it is much more direct. Kid switch on location services, access dodgy and potential harmful groups instantly.


I am still of the believe that if you want to protect your kids, giving them a phone or access to social media at a young age is not a good idea, specially if one as a parent don't know how to monitor or teach them (cause many just don't).
