Instagram works on a version for tweens

Instagram is a social platform designed for people over 14 years of age, an age that can vary by country, but which seeks with this limit to ensure the experience of its users, and for that reason it is working on a new version specifically for tweens.

The technology company announced this Tuesday news on Instagram related to underage users, which entail the configuration of a new account as private by default and the implementation of a technology with which to stop unwanted interactions with adults.

These implementations target users between the ages of 14 and 18, and are highly dependent on the date of birth that they enter when opening a new account.

The company is aware that there are users who lie about their age in order to have an Instagram account, but today there is no “infallible way to prevent people from misrepresenting their age”, as it explains in a post on its official blog .

For this reason, they are creating specific “experiences” for pre-adolescent users, a group that in Spain encompasses those under 14 years of age, according to the terms of use of Instagram (in other countries they are those under 13 years of age). And one of those experiences is a version of the social network that can be managed by parents or guardians, and offers age-appropriate content.

This version for children under 14 is in development and does not have a release date. The company only indicates that they will have to make it “attractive enough” that members of this group want to use it.
