Want to stay in touch with your friends online? You probably know there are lots of social networking websites and mobile apps that people use to chat, comment, share pictures, and game with their friends. You probably also know that for most of these sites, like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, you need to be at least 13 years old to sign up. For some, like Whatsapp, you need to be even older. If you 're under 13 you shouldn't be using them - you'll be breaking their rules and could be putting yourself at risk.
