Age Restrictions on Social Media
Did you know that there are age restrictions for all social networks children use? Thus, to register and enjoy communication on Facebook, your son or daughter must at least 13. However, many kids neglect these rules. As surveyed, 52% of them use social media much earlier than the age specified.
Below, you will find a list of most popular social networks among kids and age restrictions set for them.
Social networks are restricted for the underage not without a reason. First of all, children’s personal information is at risk as soon as it appears online. That’s why it’s strongly recommended for parents to not allow their kids to post pictures of themselves as well as phone numbers, addresses, school info etc.
Though modern kids are more tech-savvy than most of contemporary parents, they are not supposed to see everything posted freely on the Internet. Their minds are simply not ready for realizing many adult things and understanding real consequences. Much information one can find online is lie or fiction. Moreover, we try teaching our children from the perspective of always telling truth. False Internet content and our strives to encourage truthfulness are mutually exclusive.
There are much more reasons why social networks must be restricted for some ages. The point is you should prevent your children from dangers they may face.
Sure, one may say it’s not wise to deprive kids of online reality these days. We say if not depriving, at least monitoring. Supervise your children when letting them enter the web. Pumpic will gladly help you with it.
