Almost all of US kids now have digital footprint online

There is a very thought provoking study out of internet security firm AVG showing what we all know to be true. Kids’ names, images, and history are going up on the internet, and forever public long before they can approve of it:

  • 34% of children have their sonograms uploaded to the internet
  • The average age at which a child acquires an online presence is six months
  • By the age of two, 92% of children in the U.S. have some sort of digital footprint

  While, of course, the survey is a tad self-serving since AVG is in this business, the results are interesting if only because they force you to pause a minute and realize how early in our lives (pre-birth) we are online.  Check out the results of the digital footprint study of 2200 mothers from September 2010.
