Not a good idea. Children of parents who don't monitor or care about what sites they visit or who they talk to will be at more risk than then they were. Did no one learn anything from the 12 year old who killed herself because of cyber bullying? Then one gal posted on FB that she didn't care? And the parents are saying "not my little angel"?

This does not reflect well for Facebook. It's all about the money -- children's safety is their own problem, right?

Facebook saying "teens are saavy" translated becomes "we can widen our advertising exposure in ways we couldn't with just friends and friends of friends."
