Facebook is the second largest social networking website and a great way for businesses, especially small business and wah businesses to network. I am pleased to hear that they are taking steps to make Facebook safer for their younger users. Among other changes, Facebook has agreed to:
- Ensure companies offering services on its site comply with its safety and privacy guidelines.
- Keep tobacco and alcohol ads from users too young to purchase those products.
- Remove groups whose comments or images suggest they may involve incest, pedophilia, bullying or other inappropriate content.
- Send warning messages when a child is in danger of giving personal information to an adult.
- Review users' profiles when they ask to change their age, ensuring the update is legitimate and not intended to let adults masquerade as children.
