We all see things on Facebook all of the time that can be horribly annoying. The “I’m posting this solely for undue attention that will not benefit you or I” type statuses which will only be made worse, should preteens be permitted to have Facebook.

And, don’t get me wrong, the whole notion of a baby Facebook account was cute at one point, but now, let’s face it, it’s still functioning in the same manner.
Some privacy advocate were ranked when Facebook announced changes to its policies last week that would allow teens to post public updates that can be viewed by anyone in the world.
But Facebook has contemplated another rule change that would prove to be even more controversial.
The manager of privacy and safety says the social network that the social network has thought a lot about opening the site up to children under the age of 13.
These being the same kids that have no understanding of what the words “online forever” mean.
Despite the current rules stating that you have to reach your teens before signing up for Facebook, plenty of young kids are using the site anyway, often with the help of their parents.
According to a Facebook official in 2011, there was about 20 000 underage accounts were being deleted every day.
Personally, if I had the choice, I wouldn’t allow these kids to use Facebook, not only because we have enough people using horrible grammar online, but also because it could prove to be detrimental in their ability to grow up with privacy.
