Social networking site Facebook has launched video chat and messaging app Facebook Messenger Kids for children in a total of 75 countries including India. Now the children’s account will have more parental control. This app is typical of the fact that after downloading, children will be able to create their own accounts, not their own parents. Let’s say Facebook Messenger Kids was launched in the US in the year 2017. Now, it has been made available in other countries also.
Facebook Messenger Kids can be downloaded free from Google Play and app store. The company aims to launch this app and connect children with their friends and that too under the supervision of their parents. In India, countrywide lockdown is going on due to COVID-19. Schools, colleges and offices are closed in all places. This time is really difficult for children because they can neither go out of the house nor meet friends. Facebook Messenger Kids can become a big companion. With the help of this app, children will be able to video chat with their friends.
Facebook said in its statement that “schools are closed due to COVID-19 and people are following social distance. Parents are using technology to help their children connect with friends and family. At the same time, parents also want to control children on online platforms. ‘
The Facebook Messenger Kids app has a special feature called Supervised Friending. With the help of this feature, parents will be able to ensure who they have to add to their children’s friend list and who is not. In addition, parents will also receive notifications of friend requests to children on the dashboard. Not only that, but parents in this app can also empower their teachers to add children to school and class groups.
