At what age can children access social media sites?

In 2013, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, a federal law, went into effect placing many strict compliance requirements on companies that collect information about children under the age of 13. As a result, many sites such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter all require children to be at least 13 years of age to sign up. However, the law doesn’t preempt children from giving false information about their age to sign up. This is another reason why parents are encouraged to have conversations with their children about the responsible and safe use of social media.
