It is the parent's responsibility to educate their children as to what kind of behavior is appropriate and what is not. It is also the responsibility of a parent to suprvise children especially when that child is using the Internet which does indeed present some danger to children.

A properly educated and supervised child is not at a great risk of being vicyimized on the Internet. In fact there are many more dangerous places on the Internet than facebook. An unsupervised, uneducated child using the Internet would be in danger regardless of whether or not he or she had a facebook account.

The important matter is that parents supervise their child's Internet time, educate the child as to the dangers, and regularly check the child's acount to make sure they are not sharing information that is inappropriate and check their conversations and friends lists.

Hightreason obviously won this; it's just that no-one bothered to vote. xD
No offense intended; but awesome74 was clearly just intimidated by hightreason's debating skills in the first round, so right away, she decided to give up.
