Under 13? Forget about Facebook


 
Calling all tweens! The ever-popular social networking site Facebook will continue to be restricted to users under the age of 13. It’s understandable why many people feel that it’s inappropriate to have young kids on Facebook – it can be a seriously dangerous and lead to major problems like cyber bullying and identity theft.


Mark Zuckerberg, creator of Facebook, clarified a recent statement that apparently was misinterpreted. Media reports claimed that the young entrepreneur was not happy with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (which makes it hard for kids under the age of 13 to set up an account). Zuckerberg is now declaring that he doesn’t think kids under 13 should be allowed on Facebook, but that it’s a topic that should be discussed in the future, “especially for educational purposes.”


While some tweens get around the no-users-under-13-rule by simply lying about their birth year, everyone should be cautious about the info they post on this site. It’s a lot more public than you think!


What do you girlies think about the age rule?
