Europe May Restrict Teens Online

The Age Limit for Teens Online May Increase from 13 to 16

What's Happening?

By the end of this week it could be illegal for any European child under 16 to use Facebook - or Snapchat or any messaging service - without the express consent of their parents. That, according to some interpretations, would be the result of a vote by an obscure committee to raise the digital age of consent from 13 to 16.
