If under 16 you cannot use Facebook without consent

If under 16 you cannot use Facebook without consent

Everyone knows Facebook, social media giant and part of our daily lives.

A new law has been drafted where opening any account on facebook or any other social media need consent of parents or guardians if you under the age 16.

Yes, this is true.

This law has been drafted in France legislation to improve access to information that companies gather to use it for different purposes including disseminating information to other firms about people’s online activity. This will help companies alter or delete some of the information based on the age group.

The social media pages will have a tick box that needs to be checked to proceed further. This check is a declaration governed by the law.

But we need to see how effectively this will be implemented and how enforceable such a process would be once the law is passed and comes into force.
