Facebook Expands Messenger for Kids to Dozens of New Markets, Makes Adding Friends Easier

Facebook is one of the biggest social media platform and a big part of the reason why that is the case has to do with the fact that it markets itself to people of all ages, but at the end of the day children are vulnerable to predators and the like and adults that are making posts for other adults might not want to have to bear in mind that children are also on the site which is why Facebook developed Messenger for Kids as an app that would service the younger demographics, taking a page of out Google’s book by looking at what it did with YouTube Kids.

This new platform has been active for nearly 3 years now and the fact of the matter is that it has been widely popular, and now with schools closed and kids spending so much time at home it was quickly becoming a necessary service that was highly in demand which meant that the time was right for Facebook to expand it into new markets. Hence, Facebook has now introduced Messenger for Kids in 74 new markets, thereby making it so that the platform can get a lot more users.

The platform has also made it easier for kids to add other kids as friends by easing parental restrictions which means that you would have the option to give your children more restricted access to the internet but if you trust your child and are not overly concerned then you can let them have more autonomy in this regard. Facebook’s expansion of Messenger for Kids is interesting and we will have to wait and see if more services are created for the younger populace, something that is quickly becoming a trend in the tech industry in general.
