Reply To: NARSOL calls on Zuckerberg, Facebook to change policy

Jeremy Heady

You know, I toyed with presenting this same idea. My oldest daughter just turned 13 earlier this year and I set up her Facebook account. I noticed that there are no privacy restrictions on her account due to her age unless I set them up that way, which I did. This could be something they are working on so they can change their TOS. The only reason I don’t think it has changed yet is because Facebook is testing algorithms like this to provide more safety to minors. I hope I’m right. States that submit the identifiers to Facebook, like New York as mentioned, should be changing their laws soon in light of Packingham though. My state does not do this, but we have to register identifiers. I have had no problem with my account in over 3 years.
