Facebook urged to scrap Instagram for children plans
A campaign group claims the "image-obsessed" platform is dangerous for children's health and privacy.

IG relies on extensive data collection, maximising time on devices, promoting a culture of over-sharing… certainly not appropriate for 7-yr olds.

Having a social network for children is a pretty fucking terrible idea no matter how you look at it. I can’t think of a good reason why this would be beneficial to children that outweighs the risks (addiction, social isolation, exploitation, bullying, comparison). Like people should be up in arms about this idea.
