President Obama and First Lady Michelle Refuse to Let Daughters Use Facebook

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle refuse to let their daughters use Facebook. In an interview on NBC's Today Show on Wednesday, Mrs. Obama declared that she's "not a big fan of young kids having Facebook." Which means the Obama's daughters, Malia, age 12, and Sasha, age 9, do not have Facebook accounts.

Mrs. Obama cited security issues as one of the reasons her children do not use the world's largest social network. More importantly, Mrs. Obama sternly asserted that Facebook is "not something [Malia and Sasha] need." Mrs. Obama did not fully eliminate the possibility of the girls having Facebook accounts when they are older but for now it's not an option.
