The UK group 5Rights Foundation has just published its report, “Disrupted childhood: the cost of persuasive design”.
The report explains how persuasive design strategies, deployed to maximise the collection of personal data, impact on children’s social, mental and physical development. It “highlights how automated technology both leverages and reinforces human instinct in order to trigger habits and behaviours...Those formed before 9 yrs old take significant intervention to change.”
”The costs for children”, they say, “are palpable”.
