MRC Intern Charlotte Hazzard


Facebook places restrictions on a user's account and threatens to disable it for false claims of not meeting Facebook's age requirements: Facebook restricted MRC Newsbusters intern Charlotte Hazard's account after the platform claimed she did not meet the age requirement to have a Facebook account. Hazzard, who is indeed over 13-years-old, received a message that her account would be permanently disabled in 30 days if she did not contest the claim, according to user-generated screenshots. Her screenshots also show that Facebook restricted her ability to "go live" and "advertise" for 30 days. It is unclear whether a specific post triggered the restrictions. The day after Facebook threatened to disable her account, Hazard tweeted that Facebook restored her account.
