Report it, the age limit is 13.

Sorry Facebook NOT the FBI! grin

Report it. They won't know it was anything to do with you. FBI should shut it down (not sure how!)
It's is scary.

Thanks for responses.
At least I'm not alone in being utterly shock by this.

I'm nervous about reporting, but also worried by it.

I hate being a responsible parent!

I know a few kids on FB. It is pointless. Some people have FB pages before they are even born. Sad people imo.

FB have an age limit & they need to enforce this.

Report it to FB.

At my school a number of the Reception children have their own accounts - quite ridiculous / pointless in my opinion.

It's frightening. The child has no privacy controls in place either.

We had this come to light at school a while back.
I think it's just unnecessary, what 8 yr old needs a Facebook account. Just asking for trouble.
On very dodgy ground in my opinion.

On FB, someone on my timeline linked to a FB profile of a child in dd's class at school. They are 7/8yo's.

Genuinely shocked by this.

Wondering what other MNer reactions are?

Is it worth reporting? Or just let it go

Thanks in advance
