The UK CHILDREN’S COMMISSIONER PUBLISHES A HELPFUL REPORT


 

‘Our data footprints are getting bigger and bigger. This is true for all of us. But the difference for children today is that their data footprints begin from the very moment when their parents proudly upload that first baby photo to social media. On average, by the age of 13, parents have posted 1300 photos and videos of their child to social media. The amount of information explodes when children themselves start engaging on these platforms: on average children post to social media 26 times per day – a total of nearly 70,000 posts by age 18’
