Facebook for kids under 13 is on the way

Mark Zuckerberg has just announced his plans to launch a special website for children under 13 years.

Even if you must have 13 years to become a user of the famous social network, the miners are already using it anywhere in the world. The pressure on the company to avoid children lying to get an account has increased over the last year.

No decision had been taken for the moment about a possible policy change. Facebook is just working on a new technology that would allow children to use the online social network under parental supervision. Parents would be able to link their accounts to their children’s and control friend requests and third-party applications.

As the federal law Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) prohibits all Internet companies from collecting personal information about children under 13 without verifiable parental consent, “Facebook needs to proceed with an abundance of caution,” says Rep. Mary Bono Mack, R-California.

The Menlo Park firm hinted that the technology will be thought in order to help parents discourage their children from lying about their birth date to sign up. “We are in continuous dialogue with stakeholders, regulators and other policymakers about how best to help parents keep their kids safe in an evolving online environment.”
