As the technology evolves parents are more and more concerned about their children being on social media. Despite the fact that kids that are under 13 years old can’t join many social media sites, more than 20,000 children join Facebook. This sometimes happens with the help of their parents.
People love social media or at least that’s what reports show. Almost all of the U.S citizens use Facebook and more than 90 million Americans use Instagram. This means that parents can’t really ban their kids from having an account on a social media site. They also need to chat with their friends or play games online.
In order to have a great experience on the internet children need to be taught some lessons about how dangerous the internet can be. For instance, children should not have accounts on sites that are designed for adults, like Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
After kids learn how to use the computer or laptop that can get permission to watch some interesting videos with their parents. Before they know it, their children will master the internet. Of course, there are some special social media sites for them too.
Children that have between 5 and 7 have a special site designed for them. It is called Club Penguin and it is made by Disney. On this social media site, they can watch videos, play games, and use virtual money to buy stuff. The best thing about this site is that there are moderators that can help your child in real time. So it the kid has a problem he just has to press a button. On this site users can also chat with one another and help each other with activities and games.
For kids that are already 9 years old, there is another social media site named Yoursphere. It’s like Facebook designed for children. This site has free games are they don’t tolerate bullying. Also, nobody that is over 18 years old can create an account on this site.
Kids that are 10 to 12 have a special site named Kidzworld where they can create a profile and talk to their friends while playing games. Children can also read about their favorite celebrities or see game reviews. They can also post things on this site, just like they will do on Facebook.
These social media sites are a great alternative for children because they are safer that Instagram or Facebook where kids can see some things that they shouldn’t .
