Messenger adult chat
For the first time, Facebook is opening up to children under age 13 with a privacy-focused app designed to neutralize child predator threats that plague youth-focused competitors like Snapchat. S., “Messenger Kids” lets parents download the app on their child’s phone or tablet, create a profile for them and approve friends and family with whom they can text and video chat from the main Messenger app.
Tweens don’t sign up for a Facebook account and don’t need a phone number, but can communicate with other Messenger and Messenger Kids users parents sign-off on, so younger siblings don’t get left out of the family group chat.
“We’ve been working closely with the FTC so we’re lockstep with them.
‘This works’, they said,” Facebook product management director Loren Cheng tells me.
Your child will only be able to chat with friends and family members you approve of, via text or video, as well as send photos, choosing from a rich library of age-appropriate and “specially chosen GIFs, frames, stickers, masks and drawing tools” that let them “decorate content and express their personalities.”Sounds entertaining…Have some fun in our free adult chat rooms or meet local singles using instant messenger or web cam chat.Speak with adults from all over the world and get turned on!But instead of forbidding your kids from using ubiquitous social networking services like Facebook or Facebook Messenger, you could try setting up a limited account for them.Right now, you can only do that in a feature-crippled Messenger Kids app available as a preview on US i Pads, i Phones and i Pod Touches, but a Google Play and Amazon App Store expansion will definitely happen “in the coming months”, and the general concept might be something worth exploring for the larger Facebook platform as well.
This isn’t so much a dating app as it is one for hook-ups, so it’s not for the guys with the long term relationship in mind.
