Disturbing Numbers

The London School of Economics has compiled some fascinating statistics about children’s internet usage.

Apparently “9% of children had a face-to-face encounter with someone they met on the Internet, and only one in eight found this a disturbing experience.”

Or to put it another way 1 in 100 children met a stranger on-line and it was a “disturbing”

I imagine the disturbed ratio is higher for parents.
