I'd like to ask a question about facebook group moderation concerns regarding minors. I'm concerned about where to draw the line for due diligence responsibility protecting minors in my moderator/administration policy.

But there's no facebook tag nor one for minors. And so I'm wondering if the question would fit here.

I read this: Do we need separate tags for different sites?. It seems a facebook tag together with a "minors" or "underage" tag defines the context of a social site (facebook) where there are strong impulse for open groups and the potential hazards this poses to site owners.

  • Seems my actual question was too "dumb". Oh well. I've since taken it down.

Yes, this is certainly on topic to ask here as it deals with moderation concerns. There is a "children" tag and "minors" should probably be added as a synonym. Also, do keep in mind the site is still in VERY early public beta, so a lot of tags aren't going to exist yet.


I think a social-networks-tag would be fine to abstract from the certain social network, because the issue could also happen at myspace. i assume that the terms for questionable content are nearly identical on all those platforms

  • Its not a matter of questionable content. Its a matter of a public forum where children have access and where the parent site's profile would promote open forum (not closed, thus eliminating the hazard). I also see it as an issue of the site specific policies and safeguards facebook affords.
