My husband and I have had a running discussion, and it’s expanded to family and friends with kids around the same age as ours. Being the social media professional in our circle, I’m often asked at what age our kids should be using social media. How young is too young for social media?
Most member-based sites require kids to be at least 13 years old due to COPPA regulations, but is that still too young? Surprisingly many kids are often even younger than that and lying about their ages to set up profiles on sites like Facebook.
