The attorney generals of 44 United States territories and states are urging Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg to abandon plans to launch a version of Instagram for children under the age of 13. Al Jazeera quotes the attorney generals as saying that “use of social media can be detrimental to the health and well-being of children, who are not equipped to navigate the challenges of having a social media account”. Children and adolescents are simply not ready or prepared to handle the myriad challenges that come with having an Instagram account because they lack the developed understanding of privacy and are not yet equipped to determine what content to share on these platforms. Children under 13 may also not understand the permanency of the content they do share online.
