Instagram for kids? A version would be in development
According to BuzzFeed News, the company owned by Mark Zuckerberg is in the process of developing a platform reserved for the youngest. Currently, on the Instagram platform, it is necessary to be 13 years old to register.
This rule, introduced on many social networks, is not respected by all young users. Indeed, we find a large number of young people, aged under 13, who have access to content that is not made for them. One of the solutions to this problem would be the creation of a “Kids Instagram”.
The project, still in its infancy, would allow young people to share photos and videos in a more secure and surrounded environment. Parental controls would also be required, as on Messenger Kids.
Not long ago, the American company implemented a new system on its Instagram application. This setting will prevent adults from contacting underage users with whom they are not friends. What to avoid inappropriate messages, even if abuse is always possible.
