Age limits

What age should I be to go onto Social Media?

 

Social media are websites and applications that enable users to create and share content or to participate in social networking. They all have rules which tell people who want to use them what to do. In these rules, they also set an age limit. This says how old you must be to use the website or app. Most Social Media websites/apps, don't let you use them if you are younger than 13. Some have higher age limits. The list below will help you know what these limits are.
