The danger of the Internet and social media

The danger of the Internet and social media

Social media exposes younger users to content that is worse than on TV. The Internet and social media have an overabundance of information that is not child friendly, such as adult content or breaking news.

Research found that although 95% of parents talked to their children about social media safety,

  • almost 50% did not discuss topics like bot recognition, privacy, fake accounts and the differences between real and online life.
  • 52% of parents did not speak to their children about issues like cyberbullying. 
  • 20% of parents caught their child posting to a fake Instagram (finsta) account.

Inadequacy of ratings

There are no universal ratings for content shared on social media.

However, parents can stop their children from downloading apps to smartphones, so platforms can or should not do anything unless they require identification when signing up.

While YouTube is full of good educational content, it is still unsuitable for children under 13 years old. The same goes for other platforms.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
