Nearly two-thirds of American parents monitor kids on Social Networking Sites

A just-released study from the Annenberg Center for the Digital Future at the University of Southern California reveals that two-thirds of parents say they monitor their children's social media activity.  Slightly less than half  (46 percent) have password access to their children's account.

The study, entitled The Digital Future Project 2013, contains a wealth of other important findings, including the age at which parents believe the children in their household should have access to a mobile phone (13) and Facebook account (15).
