Should Google allow people under the age of 18 on Google Plus?

  I really enjoy using different social networks, however their is one social network that I really don't like hearing about much and that network is Google Plus. Why do I not like hearing about Google Plus? Its because I can not even access it. Its not that I have not gotten an invite, its because Google has set a 18+ age limit for the social network. Every other part of Google I have ever joined said you only had to be 13+ to join but Google Plus is different. I honestly have not seen a reason of why it has to be 18 or older. Facebook, twitter, about every other popular social network has a 13+ age limit so why does Google Plus need to be 18 or older? Its not that people under the age of 18 can't help test a beta product, I have seen people under that age beta test.

 Now y'all know my views on people under the age of 13 being on Facebook. I agree with that age limit being 13 but I honestly think 18 or older is way to high. However please remember I am not the only one with this view. So below in the comments please share your views. Do you believe people under the age of 18 should be on Google+?


  1. i think it should be 13+
    but thats just me

  2. It should be 13+. Probably educating people to use social networking sites responsibly would be a good idea, if they're afraid that teens would be bullied by other teens or adults.

  3. I agree as well.. Just got an invite and unable to get on... Very annoying.

  4. Adults can be bad too. It is ridiculous to exclude teenagers. We've the most knowledge about internet including social media.
