The 'Trending Tweens' infographic looks at kids on social media, including a look at how the sites are being accessed and which ones are the most popular.

Kids of Generation Z were practically born with smartphones and tablets in their hands and grew up with the Internet. This infographic points out that because of this, 95% of kids between the ages of 12 - 17 use the Internet and 81% are on social media. Kids between the ages of eight and 12 revealed that "Facebook was a website used by parents and not themselves," and only 8% of kids between the ages of 12 - 17 use Twitter.

The infographic comes from FashionPlaytes, a site where girls can create custom clothing, play dress-up games online and gather with other like-minded tweens.
