Social Media May Make Kids More Likely To Value Fame: Survey

Almost a quarter of preteens are using social media and it is having a profound impact on their values, a new national survey released Thursday has found.

Children who went online to post and tag photos, meet people, follow celebrities and “like” brands were more likely to value fame, as were those who regularly watched TV and movies and used a cell phone, according to researchers with the Children’s Digital Media Center in Los Angeles, which conducted the survey.
