Facebook Just Launched Messenger Kids, A New Social App Designed Specifically For Children--Here's What You Need To Know

Whether we like it or not, children are exploring social media more and more these days. And who can blame them? When so many of kids see adults scrolling through Facebook and Instagram on the regular, it’s only natural that they want to explore this exciting new social world, too.

That’s precisely why Facebook just launched Messenger Kids, an exciting new social app designed especially for children ages 6-12. Building off the success of Facebook Messenger, this new kid-friendly app gives parents the control they want and need when introducing their children to the world of social media while also allowing children to have fun, be silly while connecting with their friends and family.

A few important points:

– Children do not need a Facebook account to use Messenger Kids. Messenger Kids is its own independent app that parents set up with their Facebook account. And before you ask, no children will not have access to Facebook or their parents Facebook account via the Messenger Kids app.

– Friend requests are controlled and monitored by parents in the Messenger Kids control panel of the main Facebook app.

– Messenger Kids lets children have text and video conversations with approved contacts.

– Most important, there are amazing filters! Many of the filters are actually exclusive to Messenger Kids. Facebook had a special design team create the filters and graphics just for this app.

Here’s a peek at what the app looks like:

Messenger Kids is now available as a free download in the iTunes app store.
