Kids on web

NOTTS County Council are saying that parents are helping their children to set up under-age profiles on social networking site Facebook and as a result, children are getting involved in social media at too young an age.

Coun Matt Rooney said that parents had a responsibility to monitor this.

He said: “You should be at least 13 years old to have a Facebook page but this is not legally enforceable.”

The Council provides online safety for parents when requested by schools.
