POLL: Do you think Social Media is safe for children?

Children should not be anywhere near social media

I think it's fine as long as there is some supervision

I don't think children can be affected by social media

An Oireachtas committee has today recommended that a minimum age be set for children to create an online account with social media services.

The recommendation is included in a new report from the Joint Committee on Tourism, Culture, Arts, Sport and Media.

Although committee members did not agree a specific age, they have also suggested a ban on advertising to children online including ads on junk food, alcohol and gambling adding there should be a prohibition on any form of profiling or tracking of children's data.

Do you think children can be affected by using social media or do you feel it's fine as long as some supervision is present?
