Meanwhile, Facebook accepted that it is not easy to detect accounts of those below 13 years of age. The company said that it is developing artificial intelligence technology to find such accounts on the platform. The social media company said that it wants users to tell the right age and therefore it is creating news ways. It will prevent underage from signing up. Facebook currently asks people to submit their birthday to sign up. There is no way to verify this. Some have even suggested that collecting identity cards from the users at the time of sign-up will establish their real age. But this has many limitations as many people in different parts of the world don’t have IDs.
