Facebook is investigating options to allow access for users younger than 13.
The only potential obstacle, in attracting this younger audience, will be to ensure that they still abide by federal laws.
The experimental structure will allow under-age children to use the site under the supervision of their parents, with accounts being linked to an of-age user.
Parents or supervisors can then monitor who their child ‘friends’ or any purchases, for games or apps, that are attempted to be made.
Facebook currently bans users that are under-13, although the new implementation may help younger generations access the features of the social network.
