Facebook may soon launch a new version of their popular social media platform, Instagram. This new version will be built specifically for children under the age of 13. Currently, the regulations on Instagram don't allow kids under the age of 13 to build their profile on the platform.

The company has claimed that they will be "exploring a parent-controlled experience" on Instagram, according to a report AP.

Facebook had also recently announced new features on Instagram in order to safeguard teenagers on the application.

The platform is also facing criticism for the inclusion of kids on the application. Critics have claimed that Facebook is doing this to expand its user base.

Similar to the new version of Instagram, Facebook had revealed a new version of Messenger Kids in 2017. The platform introduced it as a way for children to chat with family members and friends approved by parents.
