First Lady Frowns On Facebook

Michelle Obama says her daughters aren't on Facebook, and that's the way she likes it.
The first lady says her girls, Sasha, 9, and Malia, 12, have certain restrictions that other children don't have because of Secret Service security issues. But she also said during an interview on NBC's "Today Show" on Wednesday that she's "not a big fan of young kids having Facebook."
Even if the girls weren't living in the White House, Mrs. Obama says Facebook is "not something they need." Maybe when they get older, she added.

    Facebook rules say you have to be 13 to have a Facebook page. Her children are too young.

    I don't mean to be disrespectful, but does she have a background in education, child development and child nutrition? I am a little skeptical about taking advice from a non-professional in these matters.
