Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Launching Messenger For Kids

  • FACEBOOK is coming for your kids. The social media giant is launching a messaging app for children to chat with their parents and with friends approved by their parents.
  • The free app is aimed at kids under 13, who can’t yet have their own accounts under Facebook’s rules, though they often do.
  • Messenger Kids comes with a slew of controls for parents. The service won’t let children add their own friends or delete messages — only parents can do that. Kids don’t get a separate Facebook or Messenger account; rather, it’s an extension of a parent’s account.
