More recently, Spotify has seen increasing success with its vast collection of podcasts – spanning topics such as comedy, sport, politics, lifestyle and health. Given that over half (55%) of Spotify’s audience occupies the 18–35 age bracket, however, some of these shows – and the frank manner in which certain issues are discussed – are very definitely not for younger ears.
Part of Spotify’s appeal is that its fluid user interface allows people to discover musical artists or podcasts that they wouldn’t necessarily have gone looking for. That creates the corresponding risk, however, that children can easily happen across more adult content by chance. National Online Safety’s #WakeUpWednesday guide can help you avoid this potential pitfall – and others.
