Youth Worker Update on Social Networking

Studies show that 22 percent of kids check social networking sites 10 or more times a day. Only 4 percent of parents realize their kids are that active on these sites. These and other insights can be found in a new study from Common Sense Media, a watchdog group that tracks children’s media exposure.

The organization also published a new study assessing the safety features of the most popular social sites: MySpace, Facebook, Bebo, YouTube, Club Penguin, Webkinz and Neopets.  You can link to the full report here.
