WASHINGTON (TheHill) — Surgeon General Vivek Murthy on Sunday cautioned that, despite many app guidelines, 13-year-olds are too young to join social media. “What is the right age for a child to start using social media? Researchers and lawmakers alike have long debated both the health and security risks for children consuming social media content and sharing their own data on the apps. The surgeon general called for increased transparency from social media platforms and safety standards for apps before they hit the digital marketplace. That is not true in general of social media,” Murthy said.
