Facebook is working on a version of Instagram for kids under 13

According To Our Research, The Facebook-owned company says it doesn’t have a detailed plan in place yet

“But part of the solution is to create a version of Instagram for young people or kids where parents have transparency or control,” Mosseri told Said. “It’s one of the things we’re exploring.” Instagram’s current policy bars children under 13.

“Increasingly kids are asking their parents if they can join apps that help them keep up with their friends,” Joe Osborne, a Facebook spokesperson said in an email to The Verge. “Right now there aren’t many options for parents, so we’re working on building additional products — like we did with Messenger Kids — that are suitable for kids, managed by parents. We’re exploring bringing a parent-controlled experience to Instagram to help kids keep up with their friends, discover new hobbies and interests, and more.”

Instagram (owned by Facebook) published a blog post earlier this week describing its work to make the platform safe for its youngest users, but made no mention of a new version for kids under 13.
