Request For Research Presentations For the PrivacyCon Conference
The Family Online Safety Institute would like to present new research findings on "Connected Families: How Parents Think and Feel about Wearables, Toys, and the Internet of Things." This research report was released on November 16, 2017 at the FOSI Annual Conference. This research was conducted by Hart Research Associates on FOSI's behalf and involved three focus groups and a national online survey of 601 parents of connected children between the ages of two and 12. The research examined parents concerns around the Internet of Things, feelings on their children using new devices, and benefits parents are seeing from their kids using IoT devices. Additional details on the findings are available at https://www.fosi.org/policy-research/connected-families/.
