First lady: No Facebook for my daughters

February 9, 2011 12:00:00 AM PST
Michelle Obama said her daughters are not on Facebook and that's the way she likes it.

The first lady said her daughters, 9-year-old Sasha and 12-year-old Malia, have certain restrictions that other kids don't have due to Secret Service issues.

In a TV interview Wednesday, she added that she's "not a big fan of young kids having Facebook."

Even if the girls weren't living in the White House, the first lady said Facebook is "not something they need." Maybe when they get older, she said.
