What does data collection mean for a child’s future?


children and computers

We often see parents using technology as a baby sitter.  That’s pretty concerning, but then I see children in the 8, 9, to 12 range with YouTube channels, and Instagram movie channels, and discussion forums on Facebook.  It’s a little bit more than concerning — knowing there are stalkers and predators collecting their every move!

Netscape has taken the initiative to ask  “What does data collection mean for a child’s future?”

Netscape writes :

QUOTINGAccording to a new study, by the time a child turns 13, their parents have posted on average 1,300 photos and videos of them online. “Sharenting” isn’t the problem–it’s what big tech can and will do with our info. What could all that data mean for a child’s future?
