Messenger Kids won't have any advertisements or in-app purchases, and Facebook said it was developed in compliance with COPPA, the law that protects children's privacy online. The app includes filters and lenses like those for that let you add digital graphics to your picture or video, like sunglasses or dog ears.Facebook is announcing the service at a time when there's been lots of backlash toward apps targeted at children.You Tube Kids, designed as a family-friendly version of the video service, has faced numerous controversies over the past few weeks.Facebook said it talked to or surveyed thousands of parents and created an advisory board of child development experts to safeguard the Kids app.
One person on the board is Kristelle Lavallee, a content strategist at the Center on Media and Child Health, an academic research center that looks at how kids should consume media.When they are texting and video chatting, kids can report problems or abuse, and parents will get an alert too.Facebook says all reports are handled by a team of human reviewers, but Loren Cheng, product management director for Messenger Kids, won't say how big the team is.It's designed mostly for non-phone devices, like a tablet or i Pod Touch.It's only available in the US on Apple's i OS for now, but it's coming soon to Google Android and Amazon Kindle devices.The app also uses technology to scan for inappropriate or sexual images.
