How Young is Too Young for a Digital Presence

That’s the question asked in this video from the NY Times, as some parents are creating accounts for their babies on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and other services, long before those children are able to add posts themselves.

Tablettoddlers’ take = we respect but don’t necessarily endorse this practice.  It really depends on the parent.  If mom or dad works in digital or social media, then yes, we totally get it.  Everything in moderation…

Hat tip to my former student Allison Penn for pointing this video out to us.  Thanks  Alli!
