The new option on Instagram is for parents only

The company Meta, which owns Instagram, has decided to launch an option for all parents who want to monitor the posts and actions of children on this social network.

The option will initially only be activated in the UK.

Parents, through this option, will be able to set a time limit on how long their children can stay on Instagram and can see each post and the reason why he posted it.

In 2021, Instagram thwarted plans to create an Instagram platform for kids under the age of 13, following a backlash.

Also last year, the Wall Street Journal reported that Meta had conducted some research that found that teens blamed Instagram for increasing feelings of anxiety and depression - and then kept the study secret.
