Children must be 13 to have a facebook account
When Facebook says users must be over the age of 13, it is a requirement NOT a recommendation. This is because of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA).
Most parents are shocked to learn that the 13 year age limit is based on US federal law. And yet, under 13s still have Facebook accounts!
