Abstract
Modern information society is characterized by rapid and wide spread of the Internet in all spheres of human life. Intellectualization of Internet technologies suggest that the children's Internet sector is "younger" and younger schoolchildren are active consumers of media content. The study aims to assess the indicators of basic needs identified in information requests, and the degree of popularity of Internet technologies and Internet services among primary schoolchildren. The data were collected by the survey method conducted for primary schoolchildren aged from 7 to 10 years. 63 schoolchildren participated in the survey. The questionnaires developed by the author covered a range of issues related to the time and goals of Internet content consumption, awareness of schoolchildren about online risks and others. It was found that the Internet is used by primary schoolchildren to study (50% on average), to search for information (60%), to communicate (about 50% of children aged 9-10 years). Primary schoolchildren actively use social networks: on average, about 60% communicate in the social networks Vkontakte (Vk). It was found that children start to realize the online risks by the age of 10 years. The study confirmed the hypothesis that the Internet has covered all the areas of interests of primary schoolchildren - 100% of children use the Internet daily. It is concluded that there is a need for comprehensive protection of primary schoolchildren from possible online risks associated with uncontrolled use of Internet services.
