The young users can now also choose the people who can see posts they are tagged in on their profile and who are allowed to comment on their public posts
Meta-owned social media platforms Facebook and Instagram on Monday introduced a set of new features to protect their young users from online harm and to create safe, age-appropriate experiences for teens using the networks.
“Starting now, everyone who is under the age of 16 (or under 18 in certain countries) will be defaulted into more private settings when they join Facebook,” Meta said in a press note.
The new feature will encourage teens already on the app to choose more private settings such as choosing who can see their friends list, and who can see the people, pages, and lists they follow.
