"Facebook launched a Messenger app just for kids this past December, but it was only available on iOS. Now the app is available on Amazon's app store for Fire tablets as well. While it might not help counter the current worries over connected gadget addiction, the app has some built-in features to help limit kids exposure to undesirable content and people."
If I had small kids, I wouldn't let then within a mile of this thing..not after the FB have acted in the past and the things they have done and are accused of doing to keep the edge. But that's just me..
I feel sorry for kids these days. They're being sucked into social media and the upshot of this is that they're every move, every mistake they make while growing up will be owned by corporations and form a track record that can be used against them for the rest of their lives.
FB is dreadful for snorting up personal info for its own usage and has no regard for privacy.
I have stopped feeling sorry for the stupid shit people do with their free time. Regardless of their age.
I have grown a total "fuck you" attitude towards people living their lives partly on facebook. It's like animals walking right into the fucking zoo... or a slaughterhouse for that matter. "Fuck you, you weak, stupid dumbfucking half/self-conscious piece of social shit."
