In addition, the social network will limit the ability of advertisers to attract young people to advertising, and will also complicate the search for children’s pages for suspicious accounts.
Instagram, a social network owned by the American company Facebook, announced on Tuesday the decision to make the accounts of new users under the age of 16 closed by default. This is reported by the press service of the social network.
According to her, this decision is aimed at protecting children from unwanted comments that can be left by suspicious users. It is reported that already registered young users with an open profile will be offered to make access to their page limited. At the same time, children have the right to choose what their profile will be, and if they wish, they can make it open.
In addition, Instagram will limit the ability of advertisers to attract young people to advertising, and will also make it more difficult to search for children’s pages for suspicious accounts. The implementation of innovations is planned through new technologies that will detect potentially suspicious users and prevent their interaction with children’s accounts.
