Facebook wants your children on its new Messenger Kids app
With more than 2 billion users today, Facebook is already the world’s biggest social network. But the company is looking ahead to tomorrow, and it’s decided that a big new market of opportunity is with younger users with messenger app.
The social network announced on Monday that it’s launching a new app, Messenger Kids, which allows children to use Facebook’s messaging software, the first time the company has allowed children younger than 13 to have an official presence on any of its platforms. Google announced something similar in March called Family Link, set of Google services including Gmail built for kids under 12 years.
