Children younger than 13 years old are finding it is easy to circumvent the minimum-age requirement for Facebook's Instagram photo-sharing service, according to child advocates. "Facebook is not doing enough to ensure children under 13 don't have access to the site," said Joy Spencer of the Center for Digital Democracy. "That raises a number of concerns about safety and because Instagram then is able to collect personally identifiable information on children, which can be used to target ads toward them in the future."
