Are your kids or grandkids old enough to use social media? It’s a decision that parents often use their own judgement in making when choosing to let a child open an account. Their friends are on the platforms and the parents are monitoring their usage, so is it OK to let them have an account?

Before you make a decision, it’s important to educate yourself on every aspect of the platform, and that includes reading the terms of service. I’ve pulled a few of the more popular social media networks and some of the up and coming with teens and listed the minimum age required by platform. Note – this is created at a point in time and you should always do your research on the most recent TOS before agreeing to sign on to any platform.

    Curious what a 14 year old would be doing on LinkedIn. Can they even have a real job at that age???? My first “real” job was at 15 at McDonald’s, and they were the only place hiring that young.
