Kids On Facebook...the Facts You Need to Know

The average age when a child begins regularly consuming online media is 8.

Even though Facebook’s minimum age requirement is 13, there are about 5 million users under the age of 10.

About 10 hours and 45 minutes per day are spent online (for 8-18 year olds).

25% of teens log into to social media 10+ times per day.

51% of kids say they’ve been bullied online, and 49% say they have been the online bully.

Only 50% of parents have installed parental controls for their kids online interactions, but 72% worry that their kids will reveal inappropriate information online.

88% of teens value social media because it helps them keep in touch with friends they don’t see often.

Here's a infographic with more important information.

Hi,
I am writing from Turkey and serving in a children's ministry. Also I am a pastor in a church in Ankara. I like very much the infographic about kids and social media. I wonder is it possible to recive this infographic as a original file? Then we can transilate Turkish language very easly.
Blessings,
