Facebook's Messenger Kids Arrives on Android

Facebook's Messenger Kids app is displayed on

For the kids there's stickers, GIFs and they can attach frames to pictures or send emoji just like usual chat apps. But what it did not mention was that many of those experts received Facebook funding, said the report on Wednesday.

The Facebook Messenger Kids app enables children to chat, video calling (both one to one as well as group) and play games with the contacts approved by the parents. The highlight of this app from Facebook is the parents can have full control of the app from their regular Facebook and Messenger app.

Facebook told Wired it has not tried to keep its ties to the experts a secret. The National PTA said Facebook donated money for the first time in 2017, which the organisation used to fund a survey and roundtables.

Now, we have known that numerous major platforms like Snapchat and YouTube are pushing for the child-friendly content with the launch of their respective platforms which are most suitable for kids. When the child initiates a chat, or someone tries to chat with the child, the app notifies the parent before the conversation can begin. It makes no sense to get kids started on the road to possible tech and social-media addiction so young, critics of the app say. "Stay away from my kids please Facebook and act responsibly!" They urged Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to pull the plug on the video chat app, citing research that suggests social media can have a detrimental impact on a child's healthy development in early life.

In a move that likely won't go over well with many child advocates, Facebook is making its controversial Messenger Kids app more widely available.

However more than 100 child development experts, health advocacy groups, educators, and parents have called on Facebook to shut down Messenger Kids.
