    Would you like an opportunity to SACK THE BOSS??Britain has the world's largest internet economy, worth 100bn a year, with internet revenue making up7.2% of gross domestic product (GDP), according to a study by Google.

    The study, commissioned by Google, revealed that the majority of the 100bn contribution is being driven by small and medium sized enterprises alongside larger businesses, across all industries in the UK.

    For every 1 spent online to import goods, 2.80 is exported helping to make Britain the world'sleading nation for e-commerce.

    The internet is pervasive in the UK economy today, more so than in most advanced countriesFurthermore, a quarter of a million workers are employed by internet companies, with small businessesthat have a strong online presence likely to report almost four times more growth than those that don't.

    The report says that 250,000 people are employed by e-commerce companies in the UK, and Britainranks sixth among the world's major economies in terms of an 'e-intensity index' - a measure of thereach and depth of the internet. That put the country above the likes of Germany, the US and France,but lagging behind Japan, South Korea, the Netherlands and Denmark.

    73% of UK households have an internet connection and 62% of all adults - 31 million - bought goods orservices online in the past year.

    "The internet is pervasive in the UK economy today, more so than in most advanced countries," saidPaul Zwillenberg, partner with BCG in London.

This then allowed offline publications such as:

    So how can you help to ensure your child's safety?

    EXPLAIN THE BASICSPersonal information should always be kept that way, so makesure your child understands that they must never give this outto anybody they do not know over the internet. The minimalistof information, such as gender and age, could easily be usedagainst them.

    SET BOUNDARIES:Ask them to show you what websites and information theyare accessing, and make sure they understand what youwould consider to be inappropriate. If necessary, you could alsoinstall parental control software, which allows you to filter websites.
