Abstract

Author(s): Adnan K├ť├ç├ťKAL?, Ceyhun SER├çEMEL?

The usage rates of internet and social media are increasing day by day. Social media tools, which have become one of the indispensable elements of today's social life, bring some problems with uncontrolled use. Violation of the privacy rights of children in social media and the phenomenon of “sharenting” are among these problems. Social media tools are in an upward trend in terms of number of members and usage rates. So much so that today people start their day by checking their social media accounts and they depend on social media during the day. If the addiction reaches further dimensions, even psychological problems such as fomo, which is known as the fear of missing the developments and nomophobia, which is called fear of being away from the mobile phone, may be experienced. This misuse can have negative repercussions on children by unconscious parents and adults. The privacy rights of children in social media can be violated with the behavior that is described as sharenting in the literature which can be expressed as “the parents who share their children” the Turkish equivalent. Through sharenting, the photos of children which are about their private life area can be shared by their parents on many social media platforms, and their privacy rights can be violated by opening social media accounts on behalf of the children.
