Facebook is about to launch a standalone Messenger application just for kids. It’s the messaging application some parents have undoubtedly been waiting years to see. Messenger Kids comes with built-in parental controls, which means parents will be able to decide what they're children see, and more importantly, what they don't.
Unlike the regular Messenger app, the Kids version doesn’t require the user — the child in this case — to have a Facebook account or phone number. Instead, parents need to log into their own Facebook accounts after downloading the mobile app to configure their kids’ messaging experience.
