Why doesn’t Facebook allow users under the age of 13? What are some other ways that Facebook could ensure children are safe on their site? Do you think the Facebook staff is doing a good job of monitoring underage accounts?
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg this week said that younger children should be allowed on the site—for education purposes. "In the future, software and technology will enable people to learn a lot from their fellow students," Zuckerberg said at the New Schools Summit in California, according to Fortune.according to Fortune Currently, Facebook only allows people 13 and older to sign up for the site. It's easy to get around that, however, and Consumer Reports recently reported that there are approximately 7.5 million underage kids on Facebook.7.5 million underage kids on Facebook "That will be a fight we take on at some point," Zuckerberg said in regards to allowing younger kids on the site. "My philosophy is that for education you need to start at a really, really young age." Hampering that effort is the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), which bans Web sites from collecting information from users under 13. As a result, "we haven't even begun this learning process," Zuckerberg said. "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." It could be an uphill battle.

John Rockefeller grilled him about underage kids on the site.appeared on Capitol Hill Thursday "I want you to defend your company here because I don't know how you can," Rockefeller said. Taylor insisted that "whenever we find out that someone has misrepresented their age on Facebook, we shut down that account. We don't allow people to misrepresent their age." In March, Facebook said that it removes about 20,000 profiles from the site per day for various infractions, including users who are underage.Facebook said In a statement, a Facebook spokesperson said the site is currently designed for two age groups: 13 to 18 and 18 and up. "However, recent reports have highlighted just how difficult it is to implement age restrictions on the Internet and that there is no single solution to ensuring younger children don't circumvent a system or lie about their age," the spokesperson continued. "As Mark noted, education is critical to ensuring that people of all ages use the Internet safely and responsibly. We agree with safety experts that communication between parents or guardians and kids about their use of the Internet is vital. We believe that services such as Facebook have a role to play in encouraging this." For more from Chloe, follow her on Twitter @ChloeAlbanesius.@ChloeAlbanesius
