CHILDREN’S PRIVACYOctober 20, 2010
A recent TRUSTe survey found that nearly 72 percent of parents monitor their children's social networking accounts and even more know how much time their teens spend online and the types of photos they share, NetworkWorld reports. "The data clearly shows that parents place the utmost importance on their teens' online privacy and control of their personal information," said Fran Maier of TRUSTe. Meanwhile, 80 percent of teens responding to "The Kids Are Alright," as the study is called, said they use their privacy settings to hide content from parents or friends, the report states.
