A bipartisan group of 44 state attorneys general are coming together to urge Facebook to cancel its plans for a version of Instagram aimed at kids.
In a letter, officials warn of the potential for kids to face bullying or possible grooming from sexual predators – and questioned Facebook’s record in protecting children.
The company says it will work with both child experts and government regulators to ensure “safety and privacy” for underage users.
Do you think ‘Instagram for kids’ is a bad idea? Do you monitor your childrens’ internet usage?
