Facebook Messenger Kids

Facebook has launched Messenger Kids which is a video calling and messenger app designed for children to connect with friends and family on their tablet or smartphone. It looks like it could be a good way of keeping children safe as they can only connect with contacts that have parental approval.

There are fun features for video calls which have interactive masks, sound effects and reactions which children will love. We really like the fact that messages don’t disappear and they can’t be hidden, so parents can always check usage. We think this should help greatly in keeping children safe from cyberbullying.
