Groups File FTC Complaint Accusing Facebook Over Children's Games

Public interest groups are accusing Facebook of deceiving children as young as 5 into unknowingly spending their parents’ money on in-game purchases on the social network’s platform. A coalition of child and privacy advocates filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) after court documents that were unsealed last month revealed employees were aware that young children were playing games on the Facebook app and that the company was making it harder for their parents to obtain refunds.
