"Zuckerberg said he wants younger kids to be allowed on social networking sites like Facebook. Currently, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) mandates that websites that collect information about users (like Facebook does) aren't allowed to sign on anyone under the age of 13. But Zuckerberg is determined to change this.
"That will be a fight we take on at some point," he said. "My philosophy is that for education you need to start at a really, really young age." But just how would Facebook's social features be used by younger children?"

A ton of kids already sign up using fake birth dates.

Don't you think kids under 13 are a little too young to be playing on the Internet?
