Children’s Media Barometer 2013 - summary

Annikka Suoninen

The Children’s Media Barometer research carried out in 2013 explored the media uses of 0–8-year-old children.

Various media play a strong role in the daily lives of children starting from babyhood. The most important media content for babies are music and books. Children start watching audiovisual programmes at 1–2-years of age and playing digital games becomes common at 2–4-years of age. The internet is now a part of the lives of even the smallest children, as 93 per cent of all 0–8-year olds used the internet at least occasionally. Watching audiovisual programmes has overtaken the playing of games as the most important reason for internet use among young children.
