Imagine a world where kids can be kids
Tell Mark Zuckerberg: No Instagram for kids!
CCFC is leading a powerful international coalition of 100 experts, advocates, and organizations in calling on Facebook to abandon its plans to create an Instagram for children.
The many 10- to 12- year-olds already on the main Instagram platform are unlikely to migrate to a “babyish” version of the real thing. Instead, an Instagram for kids would draw in the millions of children without accounts, priming them to use the adult platform as soon as they turn 13.
Now more than ever, what children really need is time to play, learn, and socialize away from digital devices, not their own version of an app that is relentlessly focused on branding, appearance, and self-presentation.
