We aren’t going to stop writing about Instagram leaving parents powerless deleting their child’s account until something changes. Here we go again.

The backstory:

Instagram’s age limit is 13, but it is not enforced in any way. If a parent finds out that a child (under 13) has joined Instagram, she should be able to contact Instagram to have the account deleted. In practice, she can’t, except for in a narrow set of circumstances.
