Kids under 13 shouldn’t have Facebook pages
Transcript of Kids under 13 shouldn’t have Facebook pages
However, because of this worldwide social network studies still estimates 5.6 million children are on Facebook, counting under 13 or less. These kids shouldn’t have Facebook pages, due to immaturity, potential stalking, and cyber bullying.
Another reason why kids under 13 shouldn’t have Facebook pages is because of cyber stalking. Cyber stalking is just one of many threats your kids can face online. Just like in real life, cyber stalking makes it possible for the stalker to harass their victims online and it’s possible because of kids accessibility on Internet.
Stalkers or predators lie and try to look familiar in order to gain their trust and form a relationship, once they form it then they hope to gain personal information from the child. When it comes to cyber stalking children are particularly vulnerable. They do not have the social maturity to judge situations because of this they become the victims of stalkers and predators. The NVAW survey found that 59 percent of female victims were stalked by current or former intimate partners.
There are numerous cases in which stalking is a precursor to homicide. Stalkers may be charged under a variety of traditional criminal statutes, including harassment, battery, and trespass, violation of orders of protection, forcible entry, or assault laws. But if the stalking is online it makes it harder to charge all this.
One of the reasons why kids under 15 shouldn’t have Facebook pages is due to immaturity, because kids at that age tend to get manipulated easily than adults, for this reason they might do what their friends ask them to do, for example posting immature pictures of inappropriate pictures non-acceptable at their age. Also they tend to follow the ‘’popular people’’ steps by follow every move they make and copying it. Kids under 13 do not have a critical opinion about themselves, they do not know the consequences of their actions might be and they don’t look further the issue, because of this they post on Facebook pictures of sexual activity or pictures of them showing their body without looking the consequences.
Kids under 13
The most important reason why kids shouldn’t have Facebook is due to Cyber Bullying, this activity has become popular for the past years, particularly, among young people.
Cyber bullying is the use of the internet to harm other people in a deliberate, repeated and hostile manner.
This activity has grown a lot in the pass years in young kids under 15 and one of the sources to do this activity is Facebook because other kids can send insulting messages to someone who doesn’t have a critical or low self-esteem about themselves and this provokes serial consequences. For example, cutting or hurt themselves or someone else creating depression which in a future could be an issue for themselves and the people around them.
According to some sources, 38% of young people have been affected by cyber-bullying. Almost half (46%) of children and young people say they have been bullied at school at some point in their lives. 38% of disabled children worried about being bullied, and 18% of children and young people who worried about bullying said they would not talk to their parents about it.

Interview: Mr. Tavakoli. Should kids under 13 have Facebook? December 3, 2013
It depends if the student character, self-control, I wouldn’t let them use it if I don’t trust them or if I thinks a kid would act inappropriate I would say NO but if a kid acts responsible I would let them’’
In conlusion, kids under 13 should NOT have facebook because it has consequences and you need to be responsible enough to get through problems like cyber bullying, immaturity and cyber stalking and the kids at that age do not see the consequences or what teneegers do now a days. But anyway the keep using facebook, so the solution is be able to use it in a responsible way. However, most of the kids do not do that so it also depends on Facebook because there should be some type of way to block this users before they log in.
