Kids Blocking Their Parent’s Friend Request on Facebook

In a recent survey, it was found out that children are blocking the friend requests of their parents no Facebook. Parents want to keep an eye on their children activities, their child’s social networking by looking their profile, reading messages posted on their wall, and trawling through their photographs.

In the survey, it was reported by 16 percent parent that their child have blocked their requests on Facebook. Five per cent told that they would make such checks if they know how whereas the tenth percent have reported that they would set up a Facebook account with the sole purpose of checking up the activities of their son or daughters.

Around 76 percent of the parents have concluded that they check the internet history files for some unsuitable websites.

This survey was conducted in Britain and around 2,000 were surveyed and it was reported that parents were right that they want to keep the check on their child’s activities on social networks as well as on other websites.

“It certainly seems as though parents are taking advantage of the trail of information left by web use in order to check up on their kids. These figures are initially quite surprising, but since certain malicious third parties have been known to prey on unsuspecting or over trusting individuals online, it does seem as though many could have legitimate concerns,” says Claus Villumsen of the internet security firm BullGuard.
