  • 28% of tweens use Facebook (be sure to check out our tips on protecting them against unwanted photo tagging)
  • On average, tweens spend 1.9 hours online a day
  • More than half of tweens watch videos online (you have to screen YouTube as carefully as t.v. - check out our channel on YouTube for fun, age-appropriate videos)
  • 78% of tweens play online games, and this ranks as their number one activity online
On cell phones:
  • 34% of tweens have a mobile phone, and 18% of these own a smartphone (this is up from 26% three years ago)
