Facebook Considers Access for Kids Under 13
Facebook is developing a version for children under 13, which would include technology that would enable parents to monitor their children’s Facebook use closely.
FOX News Radio’s Courtney Kealy has the details:
Facebook Inc., is developing technology that would enable close parental supervision for Facebook users under the age of 13 years old.
Some mechanisms being tested include connecting children’s accounts to their parents and allowing parents to control who their children friend and what applications they use, according to the Wall Street Journal, which quoted Facebook executives.
The new users could attract a whole new age group for advertising, but raises privacy concerns as well.
