As we all know that Instagram is the app that is the most used by most teenagers in the world and about half a day is spent on Instagram most teenagers. And due to which Instagram is updated after every week by the company in order to fulfill the satisfaction of the users. And after the recent update of the Instagram of stopping sending the direct DMs to unknowns as the new feature suggests that a person can’t send a direct DM to an unknown person and the DM is acceptable if the user is a follower or the following of the other person. The app is launching the new app under the name of the Instagram Kids
So, by seeing the above update there is one thing according to the sources that Instagram might be launching the new app or the new features of the use of the app by the kids too. And here are the lines that were claimed by the Instagram on social media “We will be building a new youth pillar within the Community Product Group to focus on two things: (a) accelerating our integrity and privacy work to ensure the safest possible experience for teens and (b) building a version of Instagram that allows people under the age of 13 to safely use Instagram for the first time.”
And in today’s world according to the reports, most of the people under the age of 13 are unware of Instagram, and moreover, some of them include those type of children who don’t even know that is there a platform called Instagram or not. Moreover, there is also a support page for the reporting of the profiles of the children who have made the account under the age of 13 on Instagram, and instead of stopping the same, the platform is now in search for reaching the audience of this age group too.
And moreover, the previous week’s update of the Instagram of stopping the adults to send the message to the teens under the age of 18 so to prevent the sending of the bad content and to stop the manipulating by the adults to the kids through the social media. And on the other hand, if the platform is made for the kids then the platform may be launched with several restrictions and other types of parental controls.
And now Facebook is trying to reach the audience of that age group in which the usage of social media in their day-to-day life is the most important part. But some of the laws of the countries claim that companies can’t use the advertisements platform in order to manipulate the kids so that might take time for Instagram in order to convince the kids for the use of the Instagram kids version by them.
And moreover, before all this Facebook has already launched a messenger for kids in which the parents of a child could define that their child could talk to whom when, and what.
