Facebook, which prohibits the use of accounts under 13 years of age, announced the launch of the “Children’s Messenger”, so that children who already have mobile devices can communicate with other friends and family under the supervision of their parents. The first wave was launched in more than 70 countries around the world. From now on, parents in Taiwan can download “Messenger Kids” from the App Store. Android users will also be able to download and use it within this week.
In response to the New Coronary Pneumonia epidemic, many schools around the world have closed and switched to distance teaching. No matter what parents originally wanted or not, in this extraordinary period, it may be unavoidable for children to communicate with friends, family and students through technology. A children’s version of Messenger has been introduced to meet the needs of children’s video chat and instant messaging.
The children’s version of Messenger has many features specifically for children, including fun mask filters, emojis, or sound effects that can be used during video calls. Children can also send photos, videos or text messages to relatives and friends whose parents have reviewed. In addition, there are specially selected material libraries suitable for children, including GIF animations, photo effect frames, stickers, mask filters and drawing tools, so that children can play creatively and freely decorate content. The children’s version of Messenger also provides parents with many monitoring options. Parents can manage the use of their children’s accounts through the “Parent Monitoring Settings” in their Facebook App Messenger for children.
