SOCIAL NETWORKS FOR KIDS There are social networks exclusively for children from 7 to 13 years old, with the objective that parents know these alternatives to guide them when they enter a social network and so that they can´t access to the social networks for adults. Social networks for kids are a good option to children not to fall into other pages that are not allowed for them, like: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and others. When children fall into social networks that are not for them, they can be harassed both verbally and emotionally. There are other social networks for kids called: giant hello, KidSwirl, together Ville, etc. All parents can control this theme about other social networks that not are for children. However, parents must control the time their children spend on the internet and also give them alternatives that are not technological such as sports, art, music, etc. As a conclusion these social networks for children help us to be communicators, risk takers, thinkers because that allows us to navigate safely so that parents are calm.
