I just read an article about how facebook aims to detect the pedophiles and inform the police. In the article it was written that on March 9th, there was one case where a guy on his thirties, messaging a thirteen year old girl and planning to meet her right after school. Luckily the police was informed and arrested the guy.
facebook officials indirectly said that they are monitoring the conversations of the users of the social network.
The purpose of use: awesome! and I am strongly behind it. However, I have some doubts. For example, I wonder if you really can trust when a user provide fake birthday? If that 30 year old guy would show itself as 14 years old? Would the conversation still be monitored or not?
