Facebook wants the last market out there -- your kids.
Facebook filed for a patent to let kids under 13 use the social network with parental permission, according to Politico. The patent application describes how a child could create his or her own account by using parental approval through the parent's Facebook account. The parent could then oversee the account and limit or monitor privacy and content.
Previously founder and chief Mark Zuckerberg has talked about allowing children on the site. In 2011, he stated that having child users would likely happen "at some point." A Facebook spokesman told Politico, "“Like any responsible company, we looked at ways to tackle this issue."
