Social Media it is not Meant for the Younger Audience
According to AAP News & Journal Gateway by the age of ten, more than half of the children conducted in a survey, use social media. CNN states that “fifty-two percent, between the ages of eight and sixteen ignored the age limit” on social sites. Subsequently gullible 14 year olds basically walked into the hands of predators. Social networking can be utilized for some awesome things but it is not implied for kids less than 16 years old because of the surplus pictures of violence, consistent utilization of verbal harassing and the overflow of pornography.

Not prepared for what’s coming, these kids do not have a full comprehension of the happenings in social networking that may cause them to be an easy target. To shield them from any harm and danger, a strict limitation must be enforced by the social media creators and parents.
In very recent news almost all the police brutality killings have been recorded and posted to social media for billions to see. Through social media millions have witnessed the deaths of Eric Gardner, Philando Castile, and audio of Sandra Bland. As an eighteen-year-old watching and hearing these killings were hard to swallow and I would not want a young child ever coming across it on their feed. They are also graphic gang initiations. These are hard to watch and sometimes hard to even comprehend therefore sixteen should be the minimum age for social media. I am a strong believer in if you “stare into the abyss long enough, the abyss stares into you”. Meaning you will become what you are around the...
