Status Update: Facebook Seeks to Add Children

Legislators and regulators are expressing concern following a report that Facebook is considering options that would allow children under the age of 13 to use the social media site.

Currently the site does not allow users age 12 and under. But a 2011 study found that more than 7 million children under the age of 12 already participate on the site, notwithstanding the age requirement. The majority of parents of the young participants acknowledge that they helped their children to enroll.

Please see full issue below for more information.
