Kids with Facebook Accounts?

Facebook

Facebook currently bans children under the age of 13 to have a profile, but that hasn't stopped millions of them from creating one. Many choose to lie about their age in order to be a part of the world's most popular social networking site. Now, the company is testing out ways to allow younger kids on its site without needing to lie. The Wall Street Journal reported on the development in Monday's editions, saying access would be under parental supervision and accounts would be conjoined to their parents' accounts. That would allow Facebook to comply with federal regulations regarding children under 13 online.
