No Facebook Friends For Obama Girls

WASHINGTON (AP) - Michelle Obama says her daughters are not on Facebook, and that's the way she likes it.

The first lady says her girls, Sasha, 9, and Malia, 12, have certain restrictions that other children do not have because of Secret Service security issues. But she also said during an interview on NBC television on Wednesday that she's "not a big fan of young kids having Facebook."

Even if the girls weren't living in the White House, Mrs. Obama says Facebook is "not something they need." Maybe when they get older, she added.

In any case the Obama daughters are too young to be on Facebook because users of the social network have to be 13.
