You won't be able to add people directly, this can only be done by the parent or guardian who has set up the profile. "As children increasingly have access to tablets and smartphones at younger ages, parents shouldn't have to choose between giving kids access to no internet and the whole internet". From there, kids can dive instantly into a video chat or text thread with their contacts. Having said that, Facebook has also added features like masks, emojis, sound effects, GIFs, frames and more to the app to make the experience fun for the kids. The new app, Messenger Kids, enables Facebook to target parents whose kids are still too young to use world's largest social network (which requires users to be at least 13 years old).
Messenger Kids isn't Facebook's first attempt to attract a young audience. "We want to create technologies that benefit, rather than harm or are merely neutral on the lives of children". It will be linked to an adults' Facebook account.
The messages sent by the kids from the Messenger Kids app will be received by the recipients through the regular Messenger app.
Facebook won't be directly monetizing Messenger Kids, automatically migrating kids to real accounts when they turn 13 or collecting data so that it complies with Children's Online Privacy Protections Act (COPPA) law. " said Loren Cheng, Product Management Director, Facebook".
According to TechCrunch, Facebook will not be directly monetizing the kids app, but hopes they will become dedicated Facebook users in the future. Messenger Kids represents a safe environment for children while expanding Facebook's reach.
