"I think that parents are right when they say that primary school children should not be on Facebook and I support Queensland parents when they say that Facebook needs to do more to address their legitimate fears," the Courier Mail quoted Bligh as saying.

"Vigilant parents can email the company if their child is under 13 and the child's site will be shut down.

"Unfortunately, there really is nothing to stop their child setting up another site," she said.

And the Premier believes that the people behind Facebook need to be more accessible to parents who have concerns.
