Should Facebook Graph Search be Open to Teens?

Facebook graph search can be used by online predatorsAlthough it's yet to be fully implemented by the social media giant, Facebook's new Graph search is already raising some eyebrows from parents and child safety advocates. The major concern? Graph makes it super easy to detect other user's locations, and it appears that the privacy settings will be so complex that you'll have to be a cyber-genius to figure them out.

Another concern is that Facebook isn't taking the proper measures to verify members' ages, meaning that an adult could very easily masquerade as a peer and lure in his prey. This has been an ongoing fear surrounding this and other social networks, but since Graph makes it easier to find users in a specific area, it's even greater cause for concern.

What do you think? Should Graph be open to teens?
