This was written by Lynette Owens, director of Trend Micro’s Internet Safety for Kids and Families division. By Lynette Owens The Internet has always been around as far as our children can tell.

Digital Agenda: children using social networks at a younger age; many unaware of basic privacy risks, says survey Brussels, 18 April 2011 Digital Agenda: children using social networks at a younger age; many unaware of basic privacy risks, says survey 77% of 13-16 year olds and 38% of 9-12 year olds in the EU have a profile on a social networking site, according to a pan-European survey carried out for the European Commission.
