    They may not know how to use a computer yet, but a recent poll revealed that some children as young as six months already have an online presence, including their own email address.

    Antivirus maker AVG conducted a poll of mothers with children under two years old to see when they began uploading pictures of their kids to the web. The results, taken from mothers in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, U.K, France, Germany, Italy, and Spain, show that there’s no time too early for parents to post their little tots’ pics.

    According to the survey, the average age children acquire an online presence is six months, with more than 70 percent of mothers posting baby and toddler pictures online and sharing them through social networking sites. By the time they are two, 81 percent of kids have what AVG CEO J.R. Smith called a “digital footprint.”

    The study revealed that 33 percent of children have had pictures posted online from birth. And it goes back even further – 23 percent of parents uploaded their child’s pre-birth scan to the Internet. Not that they could use it, but 7 percent of babies even have an email address set up by their parents at birth.
