Facebook under pressure to scrap its plan for 'Instagram for Kids'

Instagram was recently said to be building an app intended for children below the age of 13. Now, an children advocacy group has written an open letter to Facebook Inc Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg to not create Instagram for children who are under 13, as it would put them at “great risk”.

The coalition of 35 organisations and 64 individual experts, under the banner of Campaign for a Commercial Free Childhood, has raised concerns about privacy, screen time, mental health, self-esteem and commercial pressure.
