If you`re over 18.....

What is it about?....
This morning, a T.V. presenter inviting comments on some aspects of the program, tells viewers....
"you can get in touch with us on Facebook, or Twitter, and if you are over 18, you can send us a text........ "  Undecided
I see kids as young as 10 or 11, with mobile phones, sending text messages, so it can`t be illegal..... Huh

Actually, 10 and 11 year olds on Facebook is illegal, the minimum age for Facebook is 13 apparently,.

Probably cause it could cost money. There for only responsible adults should decide whether to send a text, possibly costing up to £2  Crazy

Re: If you`re over 18.....

Where are the parents sense, & why do they not block these things from their kids (I hear some of you cry)
Facebook et al are thrust in our face and mobile phone & Device providers are the worst contenders & therefore, should allow removal of such things especially for those parents that do not want their kids to use the apps
I have a couple of android Phablets and phones where they are hard coded into the O/S and can not be uninstalled, the apps vary from and including facebook on all, > yahoo messenger > Twitter, and some other pre-installed rubbish

In reality that just means anyone signing up must enter a date of birth that makes them 13 or over.
I'd bet that most 11 & 12 year-olds nowadays have a Facebook account - I can't imagine Facebook prosecuting anyone they find to have lied about their age, about all they could do is close an account.

At any given moment in the universe many things happen. Coincidence is a matter of how close these events are in space, time and relationship.

Re: If you`re over 18.....

joining facebook under the age of 13 is not illegal, merely an infringement of the terms of service.
