    Facebook turnaround time on removing fake profiles when kids are involved?

    Anecdotal evidence suggests it varies wildly with adults, with no apparent rhyme, reason or guarantee that it'll get removed.

    Are they any better when there are kids (<16yrs) involved?

    I thought chrrb had the hobnobs at the moment

    To be honest, the time taken seems to be random. I've never had to do it myself, but reports from others I do know suggest it varies wildly unfortunately.

    One time it took a day to have one shut down, another time just under a week. These were malicious accounts. The minimum age for signing up to FB is 13 so if the child is below that age it's usually pretty quick.
