Checking up on kids younger than 16 is a good idea. If you haven't got them to be smart about their communications at 16 you might as well chalk one up to experience and try again.

But my kid has like 4, 4 different facebook profiles. Ugh.

//I check them periodically, but don't friend them because they want to be anonymous silly profiles, you can't have an anonymous profile when your parent has friended you can you.

British politicians are a strange lot - the "conservatives" seem to love making more "nanny state" rules and taxes more than "the left" do.
And the last so called "Labour" PM (Tony Blair) pretty much worshiped the ground that GW Bush walked on, and wanted to expand government-issued ID's to all citizens because he was paranoid about "TERRISTS" as Bush was.

All good fodder for the Sun and the Daily Fail I suppose

Create a fake profile and friend them with that one.

I had a lesbian freind who was an in the closet to her parents. She had two facebook profiles one just for family. At first most of her friends were friends to both profiles so things wouldn't look suspicious but her aunt followed the friend trail to her real facebook account and found out she was gay. To continue the charade (her aunt didn't care she was gay and wasn't going to out her to her parents) we all had to create fake profiles so we could friend those profiles instead of our real ones.

Pro Tip : Don't elect any politician who isn't computer or internet savvy.

British police are driving around and arresting kids based on their facebook profiles.
I'd say the politicians are savvy enough, but that doesn't make them any less nefarious.

This is the sort of interpersonal drama that caused me to quit using FB, If I have to present two separate personalities to appease all the people in my life, I typically just quit interacting with the group that I have to lie to in order to prove my worthiness of friendship.

Anyone who asks me to construct an elaborate lie of my own, in order to be a part of their carefully constructed web of deception, has serious issues. My willingness to actually enable that whole dramatic endeavor makes me even worse.

I hope you're young, because an adult going to all that trouble in order to perpetuate a lie is doing themselves no favors.
