Instagram: Allowing kids to explore

Instagram can be a tricky place especially for kids. The current generation under the age of 13 years or I can also call them Gen-Z and are also called digital-native-born in the generation of social media and internet but are not allowed to enter the world of social media. They are continuously seeking permission from their parents but are not allowed. But now can have access to this world. Let’s see how?

Instagram for the new generation

Instagram new policies

Facebook-owned Instagram has launched a new version for kids under the age of 13. Currently, Instagram policies don’t allow children under 13 from using the app; they can have the account under the control of parents or managers. The social media behemoth is developing a photo-sharing platform in order to get its iconic brands to the next wave of internet users.

According to the report of BuzzFeed, the newly launched version for kids is going to be handled by Instagram head Adam Mosseri and led by Pavni Diwanji, a Facebook vice president who was earlier headed the YouTube Kids and other child-focused products at the Google subsidiary.

Along with this new version the Instagram has also implemented new policies to ensure the safety of the teens from the unwanted reach and not only that Instagram had already launched the artificial intelligence and machine learning technology for verification. Let us know about it more.

AI detecting the age 

Instagram new policies

Instagram with the use of “artificial intelligence and machine learning technology” so that they can detect the users real age while signing up. The app allows users to be at least 13 years old, but it is possible that they can lie with Instagram but with the help of AI might be able to help with this.

In addition, potential adolescent users would be allowed to keep their profile and knowledge confidential. If they create a public account anyway. They will get a notification from Instagram of the importance of a private account and will tell them to change it to a private account.

Protecting teens with policies

Instagram is implementing a number of new rules and features to ensure the wellbeing of the new kid’s users. The key addition is the ability to restrict direct messages between teenagers and questionable adult users on the site. Adults can’t DM teen consumers who don’t follow them anymore. Additionally, the app would alert teenagers who are texting adults who have been “exhibiting potentially suspicious behavior.”

The new “Safety Prompts” feature would allow teen users to report or block adults who attempt to contact them. Instagram is now introducing warnings to younger users to “be careful uploading photographs, videos, or anything with someone you don’t know.”

Youth, priority of Instagram

Instagram vice president of product Vishal Shah said, Adding youth over Instagram is their primary mission. Instagram has added it to the H1 priority list. Instagram is creating new pillars in the Community Product Group to focus on two things

  • Accelerating our integrity and privacywork to ensure the safest possible experience for teens.
  • Building a version of Instagram that allows people under the age of 13 to safely use Instagram for the first time
