What/how to communicate with parent friends who are allowing their under-age children on Facebook?
I'm disappointed with some of my friends who are allowing their children younger than 13 to create Facebook profiles:
>A recently divorced, executive dad who has let his 12 year old daughter create her own account, and
>A busy married mom/entrepreneur who allowed her 10 year old to create an account because all the other kids at school were doing it too.
I discouraged these parents from allowing their children to be on Facebook, and also encouraged them that if they were going to allow it, to be 'friends' with their children on the site, monitor their activity and keep the computer in the family room where they can be watched while online.
What else can I do? I don't think I'll be able to convince them to close their children's accounts -- they weren't convinced with my last attempt. In the absence of that, what other tips can I give them? Or should I just mind my own business and hope for the best for their families?
