Today across South, East and West Africa, Facebook (www.facebook.com) is rolling out Messenger Kids. Facebook’s messenger kids app is a video chat and messaging app that helps children connect with friends and family in a fun, parent-controlled space. Available to download from Apple App and Google Play, Messenger Kids has been designed for children between the ages of 6 to 12 years.
3 Facts Every Parent Must Know About Messenger Kids:
- If you don’t have the significant time needed to supervise your kids usage on messenger kids, do not get them started on it.
- Messenger kids can be very addictive. Be careful allowing kids start a time consuming addiction as early as ages 6 to 12.
- In addition to video chat, kids can send photos, videos or text messages. Would you rather your kids sending photos and videos or learning and playing outside?
Commenting on the launch of Messenger Kids across regions in Africa, Kojo Boakye, Facebook Public Policy Director for Africa said: “We know that parents are turning to technology more than ever to help their kids connect with friends and family online. With privacy, security and parental control at the heart of the app, Messenger Kids provides a safe, fun space, controlled by parents to do exactly that.”
