Facebook Blocks Perverts From Graph Searching For Kids

Facebook has coded some special rules into Graph Search to make sure shady adults can’t stalk minors. Today Facebook clarified that searches that could identify kids under 18 by age or location won’t return any results for strange adults.

Facebook mentioned at the Graph Search launch that there were special protections for minors, but in advance of a wider rollout of graph search, it posted some details today on how it keeps kids safe. The Graph Search restrictions are extensions of existing barriers Facebook has erected placed between adults and children, and its ban on public posts by minors.
