92 Percent of Toddlers Online Before Age 2

Study Finds 92 Percent of US Toddlers Are Online by Age 2

It's the Internet age indeed! According to a new survey, a whopping 92 percent of US toddlers have a presence online by the time they're 2. From having their photo posted to receiving their own email addresses (seven percent) and having their own social networking profiles (five percent), today's tots are living their lives publicly before they can even type.

Seventy-eight percent of LilSugar readers told us that friends should ask before posting pics of their tots, but the Internet security firm's survey found that only 33 percent of lil ones' photos are uploaded by mom — the majority are shared by family members and friends. Does this statistic alarm you?

I've posted a few pics of my toddler on Facebook, but her main 'online presence' is doing literacy activities on the site Starfall - she's good at mouse control and getting the hang of maximizing/closing windows and double-clicking, too.

I woudlnt say having pictures on my facebook gives my daughter an online presence. That sort of thing would totally inflate this study. Having an online presence to me is when people create social network profiles for their kids/animals.

Thanks to camera phones with Internet access, new babies have their picture posted on Facebook before they even leave the hospital (guilty)!
