The following article appeared in the London Grid for Learning Newsletter:
“Despite Facebook’s popularity and ease of use, the terms and conditions of the social networking phenomena clearly state users must be over 13 years old to sign up for an account. This is due to the data protection laws in the U.S. regardless of the nature of the application. A common misconception is that this does not apply to the UK and that therefore it is acceptable for primary school children to be encouraged in its use.
The LGfL eSafety group would strongly advise London schools that this is not the case. The UK Safer Internet Centre (SWGfL) have very close working links with Facebook and at the Safer Internet Centre national eSafety briefings this year, the advice was as follows:
13 to 18 year olds are treated as minors and have additional privacy aspects enforced. For further reading the UK safer Internet Centre has produced a useful guide to Facebook privacy settings which can be found here.”
