Currently you have to be at least 12 to use Facebook. Fair or unfair?

Do you wish you could have a Facebook account at an earlier age than 12? If so, what age would you choose?

Do you think 12 is too young for kids to be on Facebook? Would it be better if kids waited until they were 18? Why or why not?

Why do you think there are age restrictions on social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace? If you were in charge of a social networking site, what would you do differently? How would you make sure underage participants were safe from bad people?

Does your school allow you to access social networking sites? Why or why not?

  1. I nominate
    1.There was a man named George who had a horrible wife.
    2.There were three little boys named Josh Homes who was ten, Jake Homes who was eight, and Owen Homes who was four.
    3.There was a man who was wanted for killing a man that his friend had killed. His name was Ken Smith.

  2. I think it is fair, because younger kids shouldn’t be on social networking sites. I think that because there are some people that can add you on Facebook, and they can try to get your personal imformation. There are some pretty weird people these days. Like two weeks ago there was this guy from Chicago that hacked two of my friend’s account. People also post Inappropriate stuff on Facebook. That is why younger kids shouldn’t use Facebook until they are 13.

  3. I agree that you have to be twelve and up to have a facebook, because a lot of kids under twelve don’t know how to use a computer. Kids twelve and up are responseable to have a facebook, but not all twelve year olds are responsible.
