Facebook Just Launched A New Messenger App For KIDSMessenger is increasingly used as a means of communication between people and groups of people. This application is associated with the social network giant Facebook’s personal profile and therefore it is not recommended for children under 13 years of age.
Thinking about the younger audience, the social network giant Facebook today launched Messenger Kids, a messaging application for children that allows parents to control it.
Although SMS has been around for 25 years, it has gradually been replaced by instant messaging applications such as Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat, and more. However, these applications are aimed at a more adult audience, and it is always dangerous for children to have free access to this type of applications.
Messenger Kids – The instant messaging application for the new onesIt was launched today in the United States and it is known as “Messenger Kids”, the bet of the social network giant Facebook so that the young people also use their messaging system to communicate with friends and family and not only that as we told earlier that it can be controlled by the parents through their Facebook account.
To use this application you only need to install it on the tablet or smartphone that the child uses, log in with a parent’s Facebook account and then create an account for the child.
Later, through his/her Facebook account, the person in charge will have access to the control panel of Messenger Kids where the parents will manage the list of contacts of the child, where they can define which contacts can contact the kids account or consult the messages of their children.
The social network giant Facebook also said that for the safety and privacy of children, data will not be used for advertising and there will be no in-app purchases.
For now this application is only available for iOS in preview in the United States, however, it has already been announced that it will be released in the coming months for Android, where it will be present in the Google Play Store and the Amazon App Store.
