https://safirsoft.com Facebook is discontinuing the Instagram Kids Instagram app, but Congress tells you to abandon it

After widespread criticism, Facebook has decided to stop developing the controversial Instagram Kids app. However, Congress says stopping the project is not enough and Facebook should remove the app. Facebook did not respond to the request, but he is scheduled to appear in Congress this week to testify.

Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal published a report condemning Facebook's development of the Instagram app for kids. The magazine used its Facebook research to show that Instagram has a detrimental effect on teenage girls, particularly in terms of body image. Facebook responded over the weekend, saying the report was "inaccurate."

On Monday, after widespread backlash, Facebook announced that it would stop developing the Instagram Kids app. Adam Mosseri, Instagram Director, tweeted that the company had been creating the "status quo" by YouTube and TikTok in creating an under-13 app for Instagram, but that the company had stopped "acquiring that right".

I have to believe that parents would prefer their children to use the age-appropriate version of Instagram - which monitors them - rather than alternatives. But I'm not here to downplay their concerns, we must be right.

- Adam Mosseri
