Many Parents Help Kids Lie To Get On Facebook
Due to federal privacy laws, Facebook doesn’t allow kids under the age of 13 to join their social network. Which is a good thing anyways. Why would you want your 8 year old surfing the web? Then again much has changed since we were kids.
Amazingly those laws, don’t stop many kids from joining in the fun. I mean it’s pretty easy to lie right? Well 37 percent of all 10- to 12-year olds are on Facebook. How are they doing it? In many cases, their parents.
According to CBS News, parents are helping them lie about their age. Researchers found that 68 percent of parents of underage kids who are on Facebook actually helped their child create the account.
So today’s burning question is, have you helped your kids lie about their age to get on Facebook?
