The age limit for using the photo-sharing app Instagram is going to change. Instagram’s proprietary company Facebook is preparing a new version of this, which will be especially for children who are under 13 years of age. That means now even children will be able to use Instagram officially. By doing this, the company is taking the reach of its product to the next generation.
For your information at present, you must be at least 13 years of age to use the popular photo-sharing app Instagram or create an account on it. According to the report, the company has announced the new app internally, although it has not yet been officially launched. According to BuzzFeed News, the company can bring the Instagram Kids app.
Facebook spokesperson Joey Osburn said, “Most children are asking their parents if they can use apps that they can connect with their friends?” At the moment, parents do not have much choice. So we are working on a new product for Instagram like Messenger Kids, which will be suitable for children and parents will be able to manage it.
There was a dispute over the messenger kids
Messenger Kids Messenger Kids is a version of Facebook’s messaging app designed for children. The company launched it in more than 75 countries. There are a lot of parental controls in it. However, recently there was a case of flaws in this app, where children were also able to chat with people who were not allowed by the parents.
