Our Featured Article for Parents and Schools:
Facebook says that it can be used by children age thirteen and up. Children as young as eight and nine have accounts. But just because young teens and children can use Facebook, should they? Is it healthy or appropriate for them? What are the risks and issues? What is an appropriate age for teens to use Facebook and other adult social networks?
