Infographic: Over one third of kids on Facebook are under 13 years old
The company also found out the 40 in every 1,000 kids on Facebook are 6 years old or younger, based on responses to its survey. The question then shouldn't be, "Do many kids that young even know how to use a web browser?" but rather, "Do many kids that young even know the ins and outs of social networking safety?" We highly doubt it.
MinorMonitor also found that a whopping 74 percent of parents are concerned about their kids' safety on Facebook, with sexual predators being a concern of 56 percent of those mommies and daddies. And if you ask folks like Charles Conway, social games like The Sims Social can be a haven for folks of that ilk. Well, at least 51 percent of parents monitor their kids' Facebook use by logging into their account. Check the infographic in full below.
