Instagram Adds More Protections for Teenagers
Keeping in mind children and teenagers’ mental health, Facebook Inc. Instagram will take a step in the direction of limiting how and what kind of ads are shown to the teenagers' accounts. Instagram intends on nudging these young users to create private accounts while Facebook works towards keeping their younger user base completely off the platform. They plan on doing this by offering an alternative version of Instagram for users under the age of 13.
These changes were announced on Instagram’s blog on Tuesday and are set to roll out this week.
