    Answer:

    With technological advancements happening around the world, should children and teens aged 7-13 be allowed access to social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Multiply, among others? According to John Sutter on his CNN report (based on a Microsoft Research and Consumers Reports)

    “Many kids use [social networking sites]often with their parents’ knowledge. A 2011 Consumer Reports survey found 7.5 million people younger than 13 use the site; nearly a third of 11-year olds and more than half of 12-year olds use Facebook with their parents’ knowledge (Sutter 2012).”

    Giving children a chance at using similar sites opens the window for kids to experience cyber bullying, identity theft, online addiction, and privacy issues, among others. As such, they should not have to experience any of the emotional and mental stresses that could lead to severe repercussions when kids their age undergo traumas and anxieties caused by social networking.
