Facebook Just Launched A New Messenger App For KIDS



We all know very well that Messenger is increasingly used as a means of communication between people and groups of people. Hence, the social network giant Facebook which is owned by Mark Zuckerberg has now decided to launch a new messenger application for kids.

Facebook Just Launched A New Messenger App For KIDS

Messenger 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Although SMS has been around for 25 years, it has gradually been replaced by instant messaging applications such as Messenger, Whatsapp, Snapchat, and more.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.

Thinking of the new users, so that they can communicate with friends and family, the social network giant Facebook today launched Messenger Kids, an application that will allow to include these children (from 6 to 12 years) in the online messaging world with due parental guidance.

Messenger Kids – The instant messaging application for the new ones

It 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.
 


In the Messenger Kids application, your child will have a home screen with the contacts they can talk to and the information if they are online. They can then start an individual or group conversation, where they can exchange messages, send pictures, GIFs, draw, make video calls with effects and masks, and other content dedicated to children. On the adult side, all messages and calls will be received in the normal Messenger application.

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.

So, what do you think about this new instant messaging app for children which is known as “Messenger Kids”? SImply share your views and thoughts in the comment section below.

What is the difference between a direct and an indirect address instruction ?

Direct addressing means the instruction refers directly to the address being accessed. That is, the instruction encoding itself contains the address of the location. Depending on the instruction set, it may also allow computing a small index relative to the address. When used that way, you can think of that as a direct-indexed mode. (Note: Some processors call ‘direct’ mode ‘absolute’, such as the 6502.)

Indirect addressing uses an address held in a register or other location to determine what memory location to read or write. The idea here is that the instruction itself isn’t directly telling you the address to access, but rather indirectly telling the CPU where to find that address. The processor may also allow you to add a small offset to the indirect address, giving an indirect-indexed addressing mode.

What Is Defensive Programming ?

Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed. – WikiPedia


Introduction Defensive programming is a form of defensive design intended to ensure the continuing function of a piece of software under under unforeseen circumstances. Defensive programming practices are often used where high availability, safety or security is needed.
Advantages Defensive programming is an approach to improve software and source code, in terms of:
General qualityMaking the source code comprehensibleMaking the software behave in a predictable mannerDrawback Overly defensive programming, however, may safeguard against errors that will never be encountered, thus incurring run-time and maintenance costs. There is also the risk that the code traps or prevents too many exceptions, potentially resulting i…
