Facebook Is Building An Instagram For Kids
Executives at Instagram are planning to build a version of the popular photo-sharing app that can be used by children under the age of 13, according to an internal company post obtained by BuzzFeed News.
Current Instagram policy forbids children under the age of 13 from using the service. The internal announcement comes two days after Instagram said it needs to do more to protect its youngest users. The development of an Instagram product for kids follows the 2017 launch of Messenger Kids, a Facebook product aimed at children between the ages of 6 and 12.
