Lawmakers question Facebook's plan to create Instagram for kids

Members of Congress are calling on Facebook to rethink its plan to create an Instagram for kids. Florida Rep. Kathy Castor, Sens. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) and Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.), and Rep. Lori Trahan (D-Mass.) are demanding answers from CEO Mark Zuckerberg. A few weeks ago, members questioned him during a House Committee on Energy and Commerce hearing. The lawmakers have now sent a letter to Facebook, expressing concerns about the social media site's past failures to protect children on the Messenger Kids app. It also has research they say shows a correlation between mental health and interaction on online apps.
