It’s high time that all the tech-savvy parents spy their kids on social media to figure out how safe and secure their children are. The vast acceptance of social media apps has given rise to a phenomenon we call as “addiction to social media apps among the teens” and utilization of handy tools is necessarily required. The international organizations, newspapers, journals, and websites have raised their voices in support of protecting the kid generation from being physically paralyzed as a consequence of addiction of harmful apps.
The contemporary teen generation is digitally acquitted to one or the other electronic device that proves a facilitator in providing access to social media platforms. The recent reports demonstrate the kids using social media apps are not much bigger, but they start when they are only eight years old. Uncontrolled use of digital media leads to exposing the teens to porn stuff and other dangerous elements. The average age of a kid involved in sharing or viewing porn-related posts is 11 and 70% of the kids are in between the ages of 8-18. This doesn’t stop here, but more than 10% teens confess sharing unwanted stuff on the social media apps i.e. Tumblr, Facebook & WhatsApp. When it comes to sexting, 80% of the total teens using digital devices have been found engaged in sexting.
