No To Facebook Kid’s Apps

Child-development experts and advocates are urging Facebook to pull the plug on its new messaging app aimed at kids under 13. Facebook launched the app in December. A group letter sent to CEO Mark Zuckerberg yesterday argues that younger children aren’t ready to have social media accounts, navigate the complexities of online relationships or protect their own privacy. The group also accuses Facebook of drawing in kids who wouldn’t otherwise be on social media.
