CNN is reporting that Facebook will unveil a new policy tomorrow in an effort to restrict sales and limit content related to alcohol and tobacco products, including vaping. The age restriction applies to Instagram as well, as Instagram was purchased by Facebook in 2012.
The policy also applies to any Facebook groups, too. Groups who do not follow the new policy may be removed from Facebook.
All private sales, trades, transfers and gifting of these products on Facebook and Instagram will be prohibited. Promotional materials must be age restricted to adults that are 18 and older, but the policy does not include promotional posts made by influencers or consumers.
