Facebook Testing Kid-Friendly Site

Youngsters under the age of 13 no longer content playing video games and chatting on AOL may soon be able to network on Facebook like the rest of us. The social-networking company is reportedly testing technology that would allow young kids to access the site under parental supervision, either by connecting children’s accounts to their parents’ or by giving parents controls that would monitor who their children “friend” and what applications they use. While Facebook bans kids under 13 from the site, a recent study found that roughly 7.5 million profiles on Facebook belong to users who are underage.
