After reading through the article on why Facebook wants to allow kids to Like things, I have no reason to bemoan them that. But comments go on to say why laws are so ineffective at this kind of thing.
I really like this comment by CannibalShogun:
The problem with almost any law designed to “protect kids” is that they almost always limit an activity of some kind that is generally harmless except under a certain set of specific and often rare circumstances. But they never just go after that rare circumstance, they want to outlaw the whole activity.
I can attest to this: if there were actual laws that were actually enforced on kids and their parents, I would definitely not be sitting here as a blogger nor as a computer science major. As a kid, you’re curious and the Governed Internet shouldn’t limit you implicitly.
