An international coalition of public health and child safety advocates urged Facebook executives Thursday to abandon plans to launch a version of Instagram for children under age 13 because its members feared it would put young users at “Great risk.”
The coalition said the current version of Instagram was not safe for young children, and it said many children have lied about their ages to create Instagram accounts.
“With Instagram Kids, which is in the very early stages, Facebook has a real opportunity to have dialogue with people who believe that the best thing for children now is to not build the product at all.”
