Kids 8-11 flock to Social Networks

Social media and kids

In the United Kingdom its is reported by BBC that more than a quarter of eight to 11-year-olds who are online in the UK have a profile on a social network .

Do you know what your Kids are doing on Social Networks?

BBC reports that most sites, such as Bebo, MySpace and Facebook, set a minimum age of between 13 and 14 to create a profile but none actively enforce the age limit.

It really seems as if the adoption of social networks is happening at a faster rate than nearly all other forms of communication.

For the full report go to Ofcom which is the independent regulator and competition authority for the UK communications industries, with responsibilities across television, radio, telecommunications and wireless communications services.
