Today Facebook unveiled Messenger Kids, a new kids-only version of Messenger for children under 13 who aren't old enough to have a Facebook account of their own but still want to chat with friends and family on the social network. First, it keeps children away from Facebook proper, and second, it gives parents complete control over their child's Messenger Kids accounts. The app, which launches Monday in the United States, gives the company access to a new market whose age prohibits them from using the firm's main social network.
This experience is tailored to devices that are given to kids, not the smartphones or tablets that parents use, which may already have a Messenger app installed.

Davis said that Facebook spoke with the Federal Trade Commission to ensure that the app complies with COPPA.
Facebook's child-friendly venture comes as other tech companies like YouTube struggle with kid content on their platform. It will be soon available for Android and Amazon Kindle devices.
