In light of the recent controversies surround Facebook and its use of data, the company has been making a concerted push to both improve its privacy and restore public trust, and the new 'Youth Portal' is an example of those efforts. The page is designed to educate youth users about how their data is being used on Facebook, giving them information from Facebook itself as well as from other users of the same age.

While there's no question that today's youth are more digitally literate than any young generation before them, the inner workings of online companies aren't always known. By showing kids what happens to their data, Youth Portal helps to build an enlightened youth populace that can make more intelligent decisions about their online behavior.
