Under-18s have a little more protection on Facebook. Even if they change their
settings to be public, Facebook will ensure they do not show up in Google searches,
and their information is only visible to friends of friends or their networks. What is still
public to all is their name, profile picture, gender and networks.

know where they will be on a regular basis. Teenagers should also be reminded to
check their security settings before they turn 18: the protection expires then.
