Updated Data Privacy Laws In The UK Will Let People Erase Their Childhood Social Media History

Updated data privacy laws in the UK will let people erase their childhood social media history. The upcoming Data Protection Bill includes a section that lets
people request social networks remove content that was posted when the user was under the age of 18. Though limited to childhood posts, this is an expansion of the ideals behind "right to be forgotten" legislation.
This part of the legislation is being called the "right to innocence," since it essentially gives people a way to escape the irrelevant things they may have posted when they were young.
Also included in the Data Protection Bill are provisions allowing users to ask companies how much data they've collected on them.
