Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg says he wants children under 13 to be allowed to use the social networking site.

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act which was made Federal Law in America in 1998, declares the minimum age limit to be 13.

Zuckerberg says he is ready to fight the law as he thinks children would not have access to the educational benefits without using the site.

That will be a fight we take on at some point.My philosophy is that for education you need to start at a really, really young age.Because of the {legal} restrictions we haven't even begun this learning process.If they're lifted then we'd start to learn what works,” he said.

At a recent summit on innovation in schools in California, Zuckerberg insisted on implementing social networking freedom amongst children, though he failed to mention how young is too young for children to be using Facebook.

A recent survey by Consumer Reports found that as many as 7.5 million kids who are less than 13, lie about their age to use Facebook.

Facebook, along with the other social networking sites, has recently argued against implementing the Social Networking Privacy Act in California which imposes penalty on displaying personal details of minors on social networking sites, saying it would hurt their business.
