Children who have a profile on a SNS, by country
  • Social networking is most popular, it appears, in the Netherlands (80%), Lithuania (76%) and Denmark (75%), and least practised in Romania (46%) and Turkey (49%) and Germany (51%)
  • Even in these countries, half of the population aged 9-16 years old claims to have their own social networking profile, rising to three quarters in a few countries.
Children who have a profile on a social networking
  • Among all 9-16 year olds across Europe, 59% report having their own social networking profile.
  • Social networking varies hardly at all by gender, with 58% boys and 60% girls having their own profile.
  • It also varies very little by socioeconomic status (SES) also ranging from 57% for children from low SES homes to 61% for those from high SES homes.
  • Most policy attention has focused on the age of users, and here the differences are more dramatic. One quarter (26%) of the 9-10 year olds report having their own profile, compared with half (49%) of 11-12 year olds. For teenagers, percentages are much higher – 73% of 13-14 year olds and 82% of 15-16 year olds.
