This survery was completed with the intention to focus on data that was collected on people using social media, and processed through StatCrunch.  The purpose of our survey was to identify at what age children begin using social media.  The population I sampled are from families that I work with, our are my friends.  I obtained this information by asking these people either face to face, or over the telephone.  Convience was the factor for used to select my population as well.

The four questions in the survey were:

1. How many of your children use social media?

2. What age is your youngest child on social media?

3. Do any of your children have more than one presence on social media? Yes/No

4. How many times have you seen something unfavorable posted by one of your children on social media? (Never, oncem Sometimes, All the time)
