My eCommerce Times column for
October is entitled "Shore
it. Actually it was published the same day as my blog that more
than 7.5 million children under 13 are on Facebook. Since the Federal Trade Commission regulates Internet
privacy in the US and particularly the 1998
Children's Online Privacy Protection Act , it's only a matter of time
before we can expect some action.
Facebook's latest user statistics
are that more than 75%
of Facebook users are outside the US. So it seems likely that the EU,
Japan, Canada, and many other countries will inquire about what Facebook
intends to do about children using Facebook!
