Since 2000, The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act has barred websites from collecting information from children under 13. Of course, all a middle school student has to do to get around this rule is to click a box "verifying" that they are of age. Consequently, five million Facebook profiles belong to kids who want to be like their older friends.
This wouldn't be such a huge issue if Facebook wan't openly selling information they get from subscribers to third parties. And who is going to protect your information from your kids? You definitely don't want them seeing what you did that crazy night back in 2007.
Everyone, regardless of age, should go to their Facebook privacy settings right now and take use of the tool that lets users see exactly which information is available to other users. But don't bother looking for a button that keeps Facebook from giving your information to advertisers - it doesn't exist.
