How children below 18 allowed on Facebook, asks Delhi HC

NEW DELHI:The Delhi High Court has asked the Centre to respond to a petition that asks how children less than 18 years of age are allowed to open an account on social networking sites like Facebook, even though Indian laws do not permit it. Facebook allows 13-year-olds to open accounts. HC asked the Union of India to file an affidavit on the issue within 10 days. Petition seeks verification of all existing users and future new members of social networking websites with instructions not to do agreements with children below 18 years. (PTI)
