This is alternately informative and disturbing: a new study by UK Internet safety non-profit Knowthenet found that a majority of children begin using social media before they even turn ten years old.
The top networks they use, in order: Facebook, WhatsApp, BBM (it’s a British thing) and Snapchat. So maybe our society is a little too social? Also:
“The poll found 21 per cent of children had posted negative comments, starting from an average age of 11, and 26 per cent had ‘hijacked’ another person’s account and posted without permission.”
Pre-teen trolls? Now we’ve seen it all. There’s an infographic after the jump.
