Facebook and Instagram to restrict content to everyone under 18-years-old


HONOLULU (KHON2) — There are a few changes coming to Facebook and Instagram.

Starting July 24, anyone under 18-years-old will not be able to see anything about alcohol, tobacco or e-cigarettes on either platform.

A spokesperson says there can’t be any private sales, trades, transfers or giving alcohol and tobacco products as gifts, and if there are, the content will have to be restricted to folks 18 and up.

This also applies to any Facebook groups created to sell alcohol or tobacco products.
