Facebook Commits To Adding New Safety Features For Teens

·2 minuto per la lettura

Social media giant Facebook has come under pressure in recent days following a whistleblower report, and now the company is making some safety changes to its platforms.

Facebook To Implement New Safety Changes To Its Platforms

Facebook, the world’s leading social media platform, said it would implement new safety features to its platforms to provide more security for teenagers. The company said this following a whistleblower report that indicated that Facebook is aware of how addictive its products are.

Facebook’s VP of global affairs, Nick Clegg, told reporters earlier today that the company will launch new tools to divert teen users away from harmful content. The tools will also limit political content while also giving parents and guardians more control over teen Instagram accounts.

The Facebook VP didn’t provide in-depth details regarding the tools but noted that one of the measures would suggest users on Instagram take a break after spending long periods on the platform. Another measure will see the social media platforms urge teens to look after their well-being when they start looking at harmful content.

Clegg further added that Instagram Kids is also part of the solution as the company looks to provide safer services to teenagers. The Facebook executive said, “We have no commercial incentive to do anything other than try and make sure that the experience is positive. We can’t change human nature. We always see bad things online. We can do everything we can to try to reduce and mitigate them.”

Facebook’s Stock Has Tanked In Recent Months

The shares of Facebook have suffered huge losses in recent months. FB is currently down by 7.25% in the past quarter as the social media company was embroiled in various cases. Following the Whistleblower report, the company also witnessed an outage earlier this month, with its platform going offline for more than 6 hours.

FB is down by 0.76% over the past 24 hours and is trading at $327 per share. However, the stock is still up by nearly 20% year-to-date despite the recent poor performances.
