  • It's the world's happiest phone! Because it's running Facebook Messenger for Kids

For parents in the US who are interested in trying out the new child-friendly app, Messenger Kids is now available for iOS devices.

The app, called Messenger Kids, allows users under the age of 13 to send texts, videos and photos; they can draw on the pictures they send and add stickers.

Facebook said Messenger Kids won't show ads or collect data for marketing, though it will collect some data it says are necessary to run the service.

Children and parents can block any contacts at any time.

Earlier this week, the watchdog organization Center for Digital Democracy, which helped to pass the Children's Privacy Protection Act, praised Facebook's launch of the new service.

Others cautioned that the app raised concerns about children's privacy. He also said the company would not automatically convert children's accounts to adult accounts when they turned 13.

It is noted that children will be able to complain about those users who are rude when communicating.

Several major tech firms have recently released products that allow younger children to use their services within the limits of the kids' privacy law - and reach more of the country's 48.8 million children under the age of 13 in the process. Called Messenger Kids, the new app will offer a way for preteens to perform communications with parents and friends safely.

Parental control doesn't end at the inception of the account; contacts can only be added if mum, dad or the relevant guardian say so.

Davis said that Facebook spoke with the Federal Trade Commission to ensure that the app is compliant with COPPA.

It has been reported that Facebook now has a little-known "Youth Team" of about 100 staff working specifically on engaging with the younger market, as it continues to compete with the likes of Snapchat and Instagram for the teen market.

Messenger Kids is free to download.

The company has stated that there will be no ads on Messenger Kids and that children's data will not be used for ads.

After downloading the app, parents need to authenticate their children's devices by inputting their username and password. And in response to Wired, the company said its privacy policy - which allows it to collect and share information, including the content of communications, with other companies - is only for "infrastructure" purposes.

"In addition to our research with thousands of parents, we've engaged with over a dozen expert advisers in the areas of child development, online safety, and children's media and technology who've helped inform our approach to building our first app for kids". Facebook is indeed coming for your kids. Thus, instead of signing into Facebook, they can communicate with their family or friends via Messenger Kids. "I think we're at an interesting moment, and there are a lot of moves into that marketplace".

The app is now only available in the U.S. on Apple's iOS operating system.

A more safer internet environment is provided by Facebook for younger users with the introduction of Messenger for Kids. The company has no plans to release a similar kids-only platform for its other main social network, Instagram. But that's slightly changing now, as the company has chose to open the doors of its Messenger services to the kids. "The question becomes do we simply ban them and fight a losing fight?"
