Turns out, rich kids are better at hiding their online racism than poor kids.
|Pew interviewed 800 American teenagers and their parents about how they interact online, and found significant class disparities in how families deal with their kids’ dumbest status updates. While most parents express concern about what their kids are Facebooking, Pew found that higher-income parents are more likely than low-income parents to help their kids set up privacy settings on social network sites. And though 44 percent of parents feared how their kids’ online activity “might affect their future academic or employment opportunities,” parents in low-income households expressed less concern than middle-class parents did. Interestingly, high-income parents weren’t too worried, either—maybe because they’d already hidden their kid’s Facebook and Twitter accounts from public view.|
