The Times of India notes that First Lady Michelle Obama worries about the amount of time that the First Daughters spend online -- and what they do when they're there:

During her visit to Mexico, Mrs Obama told CNN that she and her husband limit the use of computers for their daughters, Sasha 8, and Malia, 11.

She said that they also talk to their daughters about the dangers of social networking sites like Facebook and ‘getting into the gossip mill that comes from those activities’.

"It's confusing in so many ways. I have to admit, it's a generational issue. My generation didn't have Facebook and Internet -- you picked up the phone and called your friends on the phone," the Sydney Morning Herald quoted her as saying.
