Children & Technology


By Dr. Jo Webber

Children are still often times the most tech savvy in the house.  Mobile Internet, for example, is a swiftly evolving technology and its fastest adopters are children.  In fact, in a recent survey by Piper Jaffrey we learn that the no one uses the mobile Internet more than the under 18 year old.  Almost 80% of both male and female teenagers are shopping online and 50% say that social media directly influences their purchases with Facebook currently being the most important, followed closely by Twitter and Instagram.
