Online stranger danger and more

The research summary from last week wasn’t surprising:

Parents are more concerned about their children’s use of social media than any other online activity.

That was the conclusion of research conducted for the non-profit Family Online Safety Institute. (Link below.) A significant three-quarters of parents worry about inappropriate content; 69% worry about their child communicating with a stranger.

Using parental controls that prevent certain content and suspending in-app purchases are common ways that parents buy peace of mind.
