How Old Is Too Young To Go Online?

A new survey finds that people let their kids go online unsupervised at a surprisingly young age. How old do you think a child should be before hitting the internet unsupervised?

The poll asked, at what age would consumers allow children unsupervised access to technologies such as mobile devices, social sites and online services. In addition, respondents were asked at what age they would talk to children about online risks. The answer: eight years old is the average age at which parents allow independent Internet and device use, according to the survey from Microsoft.
