Growing Up With Social Media [INFOGRAPHIC]

Gone are the days of dial-up tones and “You’ve got mail!”

Kids are starting their journey into the online world at a younger age than ever, with far fewer barriers. In the infographic below, UK-based childrens’ delivery service company Letterbox takes a look at how kids grow up with social media.

A few poignant stats:

- 5 million users under the age of 10 have Facebook profiles

- 58% of children on Facebook are 13-17 years old

- The average teen spends an average of 5 hours per day online and most parents think it’s 3

- Only 33% of parents say they’ve helped their children establish privacy settings on social networks
