The chief privacy adviser of Facebook, Mozelle Thompson, said many Australian children under the age of 13 were trying to access the site by lying about their age.

"It's something that happens on a regular basis," the Courier mail quoted Thompson as saying.

Globally, about seven million children who lie about their age are blocked from the site each year.
