NEW HOPE, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Meet Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: MEET), a leading provider of interactive livestreaming solutions, will team with safety experts and dating industry executives to recognize February 11th as “Safer Internet Day”. The Company will host a webinar focused on safety best practices and the future of safe dating, featuring Geoff Cook, Chief Executive Officer of The Meet Group.
Safer Internet Day, observed annually on the first Tuesday of February, was created in 2004 to raise awareness of emerging online issues – including cyberbullying, human trafficking, identity theft, and more.
The Meet Group remains committed to leading the industry in mobile and online safety, best practices, continuous improvement, and best-in-class safety updates for its family of apps. To underscore the Company’s commitment to safety, The Meet Group has over 500 paid individuals, more than half of it’s staff, dedicated to creating a safe environment for its millions of users.
Furthering its commitment to safety, The Meet Group recently became a member of The Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children as part of its ongoing dedication to safety. The Global Partnership is a collaboration between United Nations agencies, numerous governments, industries, advocates, and champions, all focused on making the world safe for children. By committing to end all forms of violence against children, and uniting the world behind a global movement to protect children, The Global Partnership hopes to secure a world in which every child grows up safe.
“The Meet Group has integrated safety into the design of their operations, making their platforms and applications safer for children,” said Dr. Howard Taylor, Executive Director of The UN Global Partnership to End Violence Against Children. “Because of that, we are thrilled to have The Meet Group join our network of 400 partners across the world.”
