How young is too young for social media? According to Surgeon General Vivek Murthy, he believes 13 years old is just too early to join social media platforms. According to Murthy, this may result in adolescents having a “distorted” sense of who they are throughout critical developmental years.
“I, personally, based on the data I’ve seen, believe that 13 is too early,” he told CNN. “It’s a time where it’s really important for us to be thoughtful about what’s going into how they think about their own self-worth and their relationships and the skewed and often distorted environment of social media often does a disservice to many of those children.”
