Our Head wrote a letter home a couple of months ago warning that if any children had a FB account is was done fraudulently as they need to be over 13 to get it. She wanted all accounts closed.
Before that I hadnt thought of DS having an account, but since then it has made me think that maybe he ought to have an account before finishing Yr6 so he can keep in touch with all his old school mates easily - especially as we will be moving away.
The school has just started something called It's Learning which has a forum facility & the children immediately started using it like FB so I thought that was a good idea as then they had no need to use the real thing. But the second day they were using it a teacher came on & said that it wasnt for chat but only for conversation!! My DS hasnt used it since
& I think what a waste of a good, safe facility.
I will be investigating the FB site now so thanks for the link.
