Mark Zuckerberg: " Children Can Learn From Facebook"

Facebook's appetite for new users knows no bounds.  

Not to mention that Facebook already has 900 million active subscribers, but CEO Mark Zuckerberg considers it's time the company lifted its ban on child users (the current minimum age is 13), saying young people can learn from social networking sites.

"Because of the restrictions, we haven't even begun this learning process." Zuckerberg stated. "If they're lifted then we'd start to learn what works. We'd take a lot of precautions to make sure that they (younger kids) are safe." Zuckerberg conceded that allowing kids to join Facebook could draw plenty of criticism but added, "That will be a fight we take on at some point." 

What do you think?

Should children use facebook and why is it so important to join the social network at a such young age?

  1. I think it is okay for child to be on Facebook but mine is not even going to know her own password. Only my sitter/best friend and myself will know it, she will be watched when she is on it. Until I know she is able to handle it on her own and I will be in control of her friend list ;)
