Facebook Delays Plans for Instagram Kids

Facebook has recently delayed its planned development of “Instagram Kids”, a service in development that would be a social network designed to be used by anyone under the age of 13. The project was halted following the reveal of
“The Facebook Files”, a study from The Wall Street Journal about multiple studies led by Facebook that showed the social media giants apps’ negative effects on its users.

Facebook says they have paused development on the controversial app due to criticism regarding the service’s harmful effects on children, and Facebook has not reported plans to continue development in the future.
