Facebook is cracking down on accounts belonging to users under the age of 13.

An account that is reported for any offense will be scrutinised – and if its moderators, at their own discretion, believe that the account belongs to someone under the age limit, it will be locked down.

Previously, Facebook only investigated accounts that were flagged as belonging to an underaged person.
