Ann Coffey has called for a star rated league table to show how safe dating and social media websites are to use and how many complaints they receive.
She said this was urgently needed as the number of people being deceived online has soared.
Ms Coffey is campaigning for a new law to make it illegal to create a false identity online and pretend to be someone else to form a romantic relationship – known as ‘catfishing’.
CTZN is a new mobile-based social media platform for young people aged 13 to 18. The app has been designed in partnership with Greater Manchester police and offers a safe social network connecting young people with great activities and recognising their achievements.
