Mark Zuckerberg wants kids younger than 13 on Facebook!

 Recently I made a post on how Facebook affects Children, and an how a Student got suspended from School because of his reckless comments on Facebook. And I was a bit happy when Facebook Introduced PhotoDNA to fight against Child Porn, but this comment from Mark comes as a Shocker to me. Right now stats show that there are about 7.5 Million 13 Year old children on Facebook, and as if that was not enough, Mark Zuckerberg wants the 13 year Age Limit gone on Facebook.
 Mark comments " the future, software and technology will enable people to learn a lot from their fellow students..." I admit children would learn a LOT. And that LOT would include everything which Children should not know as well. With Kids below 13 coming to Facebook, they will be exposed to harsh realities of the World, and there is a high chance that those children go off track in Life.

 He also comments that "...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..." and all I can do is take a laugh on that. I don't think we can make, create or use a word Precaution in Internet. Its a wild open world out there, where Rules are meant to be Broke. We have seen Facebook taking measures to get rid of Spam, but none of them have effectively worked so far. Let Facebook make sure those things work first, before even making a thought of bringing Children onto Facebook. Share your thoughts below!
