Facebook launches children's messenger in more than 70 new countries

Facebook announced today (Wednesday) that Messenger Kids will be launched in more than 70 new countries, so more children who need more communication can use the app.

The Facebook Help page lists some countries where the app can be used, including Brazil, Japan and New Zealand, as well as dozens of other countries. The company also announced some changes to the app.

Facebook, which has the world's largest social network, launched Messenger Kids in the U.S. for the first time in 2017 and the app in Canada and Peru in 2018.

The company said in a message: It launched the application in more countries. Due to the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the demand for children for distance education has increased due to the closure of schools.

Facebook has changed the way children and their parents use the app because parents can now choose to allow their children to control their friend requests without having to manage each request on their behalf. However, parents still receive notifications about their new friends through Messenger and they can delete all friendships.

Facebook has also changed the way groups work, as parents will soon agree that adults (such as teachers or coaches) have group conversations, including their children. Parents can also make their child's name and profile photo visible to friends of friends in the United States, Canada, and Latin America.

It should be noted that children's messaging services on Facebook have been a subject of controversy in the past, and a bug in the app last year allowed children to have group conversations with people. Without parental consent. When Senator reminded Facebook of a more positive stance on privacy and security, it sparked strong opposition to Congress.

Starting today, the messaging app will be launched in new markets. Meanwhile, changes to new friendship requests and group jobs are only available in the U.S. from today and will be introduced to the global market later.
