I guess, like me, many parents will have facebook accounts simply as a means of communicating with their kids. In the past I have used my account as a way of finding out what my kids actually do, or like in the way of music for example. This can be more fruitful than attempting a conversation with a grumpy teenager. My kids are no longer teenagers so I don’t use it much these days. However I tried today to check my son’s page in the hope that it might give me some inspiration for a christmas present. Facebook won’t let me log on unless I give it a mobile phone number.
No Zuckerberg, you cannot have my mobile number. And I am seriously pissed off that I cannot now even get to my account to delete it.
