Facebook’s Minimum Age Should Be 18

Posted on: August 22, 2011

I think that the minimum age to sign up should be 18. I also think that Facebook’s original intent to be for college students and alumni was probably the best. It was a very good networking tool prior to the emergence of Linkedin. Facebook lost something when they expanded to allow the general public.

You have to be far more careful with what you post and have stricter privacy settings now. I have younger cousins under 18 on Facebook and they post some items that are TMI. They don’t know what the risks are and how to set the privacy setting and their parents don’t know enough to help them.
