13 yr olds on Facebook, unlike

Posted by: Paul Entwistle | 5 June, 2012 - 11:24 AM
Experts say 13 year olds are too young to have access to Facebook.

Early childhood experts say Facebook's latest business decision to allow 13 year olds to use its social network site is a recipe for trouble. Paul Murray spoke to Joe Tucci from the Australian Childhood Foundation about allowing young children on Facebook.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Facebook is, has been and will be all about money. The primary objective is to keep people glued to the facebook page and keep them coming back. Unfortunately children are the an easy target due to the simple fact that it is not very practicable for these things to be monitored and guided constantly by adults. In fact, most of what is learned on facebook is via age group, culture and environment of communication. The problem is further accentuated by the fact that the child doesn't always know whom they are communicating with and there is no accountability. In short, the entire situation is akin to leaving your child in an environment where there are no rules and anyone is invited, including, but not restricted to paedophiles, scam artists, bullies, drug dealers and gate crashers. The reality behind the money driven smoke screen might make parents think twice.

  • Young children have been using facebook for years. They get around the age limit and Facebook have let this slip thorough. Facebook has a lot of positive aspects to it and has got it's good points. Unfortunately Facebook has done a lot of damage with the advertising of parties that have ended up with riot Police being called in. Also their is the bullying, racism and general slanging off of others. Children don't have the maturity to deal with something like this and personally I think the age should be 18 and proof of age needs to be part of the Facebook membership as well.
