UK: Parents Are Allowing Chlidrent To Break The Facebook Age Rule [bbc.co.uk]
Parents are helping their children to set up under-age profiles on social networking site Facebook, Children's Minister Tim Loughton has said.

This meant that children were getting involved in social media at too young an age, he suggested.

He added that parents had a responsibility to monitor youngsters' online activity.

But, but, but they are monitoring the kids' activity. They're even helping them!

This is why the children all want one and the parents are helping..
Because this pair made one for their child..
[facebook.com...]

innit..

'arper 7 ..I find the idea of parents giving their child a name that they can't pronounce correctly more than 50% of the time due to the "H" they both 'ave trouble wiv' at the beginning of words.. tragic..

actually technically that is not a regular facebook profile page, that is a 'famous person' page, similar to a business page.

Must be why a child that age ( Harper Seven Beckham- Date of Birth- 10th July, 2011 ) can supposedly "like" so many things that make it's parents money, or are part of there businesses..

So now all their merchandise buyers and every word followers want a page for their kids too..

'arpers got wun, so 'corse you can 'ave one champayne, and we'll make wun for your li'l bro goalpost too, it ul be ready fer wen ees born in 8 munfs, ay ..innit..
