    how do they know the ages of people searching these terms. i dont really believe this can be that accurate, i know that sex/porn/nude has to be higher up on the list for teens.

    It actually weirds me out more that Kids seven and under are looking up facebook. Also, who searches "google"? That makes absolutely no sense.

    "how do they know the ages of people searching these terms. i dont really believe this can be that accurate, i know that sex/porn/nude has to be higher up on the list for teens."
    agreed. and consider this: porn is surched multiple times, whereas youtube is normally just surched once and then ppl fav the site or type into da browser (or mak it their homepage lawl)

    i was totally looking at porn when i was seven. some people mature into sex faster than others, and besides... anyone consider maybe most of them were curious what porn really was rather than actually looking at it for pleasure

    The number 1 word searched is "Youtube." Okay.
    This article seems to be fabricated or at least twisted. Now, I`m not denying that these results have some grain of truth, I`m just saying. Well, firstly, you can look up which words are searched the most, but how do you know how old the user is typing it? Alright, secondly, how about how in all three categories, the word searched is either "sex" or "porn." It looks like they just changed the third word searched in one category to make the data look more "realistic." And finally, one last point. Darn you internet for supplying teenagers with free porn! What happened to the good old honest days when teenagers had to go down ot the corner store and shoplift their porn?!

    I recall a time when I was 7 years of age and very curious about this sort of thing... Or perhaps I was 8, because I remember becoming interested in the nude female form after seeing the album cover for Marilyn Manson`s "Mechanical Animals".
    I remember thinking "this possibly cannot be what a naked woman looks like" (mind you, the album cover featured Manson as an androgynous alien, wearing rubber breasts, with no genitalia).
    From that moment on, after searching for porn, I became addicted. Good times :)!

    So, I don`t think that`s a bad thing. In this day and age, thats just a form of education anymore. I did it, my older sister did it, my younger cousin does it. Parents now a days are so pooty that kids cant talk to them anymore so they revert to the internet. No harm, it`s part of human growth.

    I`m not surprised that little kids are Googleing porn. They probably hear someone older talking about it and find it embarrassing to ask their parents what it means so they just Google it.

    Its not right, but in this day its going to happen a lot.

    "The data was compiled from 14.6 million searches made using Symantec’s OnlineFamily.Norton, which lets parents track their kids’ online activity."

    And in the mean time, OnlineFamily.Norton sends all this information to Norton so they can make juicy reports to boost sales.......

    And why do you google youtube? just type it in the adress bar, idiots. Shows you what type of person uses Norton software......

    There are these cool things called homepages that let you start at any webpage in the world you want. Like google. Isn`t that neat? You should try.

    Secondly, Are you all honestly trying to say you`ve never put something into google just for the hell of it. What happens is we aren`t sure what we`re even doing so we go to google. By that time, we`ve usually managed to recompose our thoughts, and there`s google.
    I do it all the time.

    you know whats wrong with this picture? the fact that kids are searching for google. are they googling google? or are they using a different search engine trying to get to google?? i can`t figure out why anybody would search `google` on any search engine (even though google is THE search engine.)... but really it`s just natural for kids to search such things...although, i didn`t search for nudie pics when i was 7, then again every generation changes just a bit. so i call normality.

    TKD_Master, on my parent`s computer they have the homepage set to some news website. so, when i want to go to google, i just type "google" into the address bar. this automatically searches google for google, and then takes me there. i have to do this instead of just searching from the address bar, because sometimes it just takes me to some random website.

    So, if the under-18s are searching for porn, are they searching for under 18-porn?

    "these kids today, they`ll never know the thrill that you got being 15 years old and finding a stack of playboys behind a dumpster, you felt as if you just found the greatest treasure the world had ever produced." -Evilcupcake

    Summed it up perfectly.

    I didn`t even know when you were 7 you had the proper parts to fap. Thanks, IAB! And I agree with ClownFace.

    Meh. They have to learn from somewhere.

    When I was a little kid I was unaware of the internet (and became interested only a couple of years ago) so I discovered porn from cable TV.
    I liked it, so I kept watching... until a couple of years later I discovered the internet and never watched that boring soft-core stuff again. LOL

    It`s natural and perfectly normal. Nothing to be worried about.

    Besides, porn is awesome.

    In a somewhat worrying piece of news, ... Topping the lists: “YouTube,” “Google,” “Facebook,” “sex” and “porn.”

    Its not worrying at all. What a dumbass writer this guy is.

    I thought the data was pretty cool.
