Social Media Starts Early

92% of Children Under 2 Have Social Media Presence

I troll through lots of social media blogs and newsletters to learn more about blogging, and this article caught my eye: What You Need to Learn About Social Media from Your 2-Year-Old by Matt Carmichael from AdAge.  The AVG study is here.

Here’s the key point:

An internet security company called AVG surveyed moms in North America and parts of Europe and found that in the U.S. 92% of children under the age of 2 have an online presence of some sort. Generally, the U.S. had higher responses to all the questions: 33% of moms have posted a picture of their newborn; 23% (34% in the U.S. and 37% in Canada) have posted ultrasound pics; 7% have an e-mail address for their infants.

I’m not sure if this is good or bad but it’s significant.
