Social Media Age Limits

Social Media Age Limits

There are age limits in place to prevent children being exposed to inappropriate material on social media, but it appears that, “More than half of parents [and carers are] unaware of the age limit on social media.”

New figures suggest the majority of parents and carers don’t know if their children are old enough to use social networks like Facebook or Snapchat. It is believed that some think that there are no age requirements at all for social media.

Some sites can be a dangerous place for younger children, potentially exposing them to bullying, inappropriate content or grooming. But they can also provide important support networks for younger people.

Our advice for families is to check the NSPCC website: this will help you learn how to keep children safe online.
