Instagram Rules – level 1

12-12-2019 07:00

Instagram has a new rule. All users must give their birthdays if they want to make a new account. Some users are very young. Instagram can be dangerous for them.

The company wants to give its young users more information to control their accounts. It also wants to offer a service that is more suitable for their age. It is possible that some users lie about their real age. This is when they want to make an account. However, the company believes that most people tell the truth.

In the past, some people say things against Instagram. They say that their rules about age are not good. They say that it is against the law to collect information about children.

Difficult words: rule (something that people must do), control (to have power over something), suitable (good).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
