What do you think is the best way to deal with the increasing number of under 13s using social networks like Facebook?
Communication. Talk to your kids, have honest conversations with them about it and explain why it can be dangerous and how to keep safe. I have an under 13 who uses it under these conditions: he is not allowed to have photos of himself on his profile, not allowed to disclose his real age, must have friend requests approved by me, has maximum privacy settings in place and must not communicate with people he doesnt know.. It has been brilliant for keeping in contact with family that don’t live nearby. I don’t think it’s a problem if parents supervise usage and teach their kids how to use it properly.
