Potential members might have to be 13 to sign up, and people do easily lie about their ages, and even though it can sometimes be difficult to watch
everything a kid does online (or away from home), the parent still needs to take some responsibility for the safety of their children (obviously).
There ARE security measures that can be taken to where no one can find or contact a person on FB without being in the same network (such as a school)
or without being "friends," which pretty much shields one from everyone else. Hell, you can even prevent anyone except for friends from messaging or
friend requesting you. A parent could do this, easily, and should have, for a minor.
That said, maybe FB should have some sort of parental controls for minors. While a teen could easily change the privacy setting as mentioned above, if
they were "locked out" from undoing the changes, it might make predators less able to target these people. And being outside the network, no contact
could likely be made.
Just a thought.
This guy's pretty messed up. The most determined predator with spend as much time as necessary gaining trust to achieve his or her goal. In case,
