Bu betimleyici çalışma, çocukların sosyal ağlarda kişisel bilgi paylaşım eğilimleri, sosyal ağları kullanma alışkanlıkları ve potansiyel riskli davranışlarını belirlemeyi hedeflemektedir. Bu çalışma Türkiye’nin en büyük üç şehrinde (İstanbul, Ankara ve İzmir) gerçekleştirilmiş olup, veriler rastgele seçilen 9 ile 16 yaş aralığındaki sosyal ağ kullanıcısı 524 çocuk ve velileri ile yüz yüze görüşmeler yapılarak toplanmıştır. Bu görüşmeler esnasında her çocuk ve yanında bulunan velisine 25 sorusu çocukların sosyal ağ üyelikleri ve sosyal ağlardaki davranışları ile ilgili, 13 sorusu da velilerinin demografik bilgileri ile ilgili, toplam 38 sorudan oluşan 5’li Likert tipi soru sorulmuştur. Soruların oluşturulmasında EU Kids Online projesi ve PEW çalışması kapsamında geliştirilmiş anketlerden yararlanılmıştır. Veriler, çocukların sosyal ağ kullanımındaki eğilimleri ve kişisel bilgi paylaşım alışkanlıklarını etkileyen faktörleri elde etmek için betimsel ve karşılaştırmalı olarak analiz edilmiştir. Sonuçlar göstermektedir ki çocukların yaşları arttıkça sosyal ağ kullanımı artmaktadır. En çok kullanılan sosyal ağ Facebook’tur. Pek çok sosyal ağ sitesi üzerinde hesap oluşturabilmek için en az 13 yaşında olmayı gerektirirken, çalışmaya katılan çocukların neredeyse yarısı 13 yaşından küçük olmalarına rağmen sosyal ağlarda hesapları bulunmaktadır. Çalışmaya katılan çocukların çoğunluğu cep telefonu numaraları, ev adresleri ya da aile üyelerinin isimleri gibi kişisel bilgilerini herhangi bir kısıtlama olmaksızın üyesi oldukları sosyal ağlardaki tüm kullanıcılar ile paylaşmaktadırlar. Araştırmacılar yaşanabilecek herhangi bir olumsuz durumu önlemek adına hem ailelerin hem de çocukların sosyal ağ kullanımı konusunda bilinçlendirilmeleri ve ayrıca sosyal ağ geliştiricilerinin de çocukların çevrimiçi güvenliğini sağlamak adına gerekli çalışmaları yapmaları gerektiğini bildirmektedirler. 

This descriptive study aims to identify children’s information disclosure tendency in social network environments, their social network use habits and potential risky behaviors. The study was conducted in Turkey’s three largest cities (Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir), and data were gathered with a survey through face-to-face meetings with randomly selected 524 children between 9 and 16 years old who used social networks, and their parents. The survey consisted total of 38 Likert-type questions that 25 of them were asked to children in order to learn about their social network memberships and habits, and 13 of them were asked to parents in order to collect data about their demographics. Data were analyzed to make descriptive and comparative analysis to see tendencies of children while using SNs and some factors influencing information disclosure. Results show that as children’s age increases, the amount of Internet usage also increases. The most frequently used social network site is Facebook. Although the minimum age to create a profile on most social network sites is 13, results show that nearly half of the children who reported having a profile were younger than that. Most of the children share personal information such as mobile telephone numbers, home addresses and names of family members with anyone who accessed the networking site. The researchers suggest that parent’s and children’s awareness should be raised about the use of social networks to prevent the potential negative consequences of sharing private information. Moreover, social network developers must take necessary actions to protect children’s online privacy.
