Facebook Considers Allowing Kids Under 13 to Sign Up

Facebook’s 13-and-up age cut-off could soon be a thing of the past.

The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the social media giant is working on plans to let kids use the site with their parents’ supervision.

Children accounts would include links between kids’ and their parents’ accounts and requirements that parents approve every friend request and application use.

But with many children already lying about their ages to create Facebook pages, executives believe they have no choice but to establish better parental controls in consideration of a federal law that requires verifiable parental consent before collecting data on kids under 13.

What age would you consider letting your child get a Facebook?
