Facebook launches new settings to protect teenage accounts
Facebook recently announced the addition of new settings to protect teens under the age of 16, by enabling their new accounts and encouraging those previously registered with Facebook to use these settings.
Settings include restricting teens' account details from being displayed so that only their friends can see posts they're mentioned in, a list of friends, Pages, and people they follow, review posts they're mentioned in, and only friends can comment on their public posts.
This attempt comes to protect teens from exploiting adults, in addition to testing a way to prevent them from messaging by removing the message option from teen accounts.
It should be noted that in August, Instagram added similar features to protect teenagers.
