New figures suggest parents don't know if their children are old enough to use social networks like Facebook or Snapchat
The majority of parents across the country don't know whether their children are old enough to be using social networks.
Shockingly, 1 in 5 parents 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.
It’s vital that social media companies make age restrictions clearer on sign up pages, so that younger people and parents can be confident using social networks safely.
