To be able to terminate such accounts, Facebook will ask users to prove in any way that you are 13 years or older, either with any official identification issued by the government of your country or the license to operate, if it is not this way, no one can enter to the social network.

The age designated to create an account on face-book is 13 years, because after this is when the children can be benefited by the Law on the Protection of the Privacy of Children Online, which has and should be respected by companies who wish to obtain information from its users.
