Social media website Facebook has launched Messenger for kids. These days, children are increasingly using the Internet and smartphones. Technology adoption is increasing at an early age. In fact, Facebook has introduced a new version of the Messenger app, specifically designed for children between the age of 6 and 12. There is no need of having Facebook account to use this new Messenger Kids. According to the Federal Law in the US, children under 13 cannot make an account on Facebook, so the company has made it useful without the Facebook account.
The specialty of this app is that parents can keep track of the children by linking them to their accounts. Parents here can also control whom children should talk to and whom not. Facebook says there will be no ads in this Messenger Kids app and children’s information will not be used for advertising. For the moment, this app has been launched for the US and it is being offered in some smartphones as testing now that runs on iOS. It is not known when the app will launch in India.
