"We appreciate that for now, the product is ad-free and appears created to put parents in control".

And messages don't disappear and can't be hidden in case parents want to monitor them, Facebook says on its website. Facebook, however, said it launched Messenger Kids after talking to thousands of parents, associations like National PTA and parenting experts.

"There are no ads in Messenger Kids and your child's information isn't used for ads".

"Not sure this is the right direction at all", he tweeted.

Facebook has been careful to comply with the law, said Kathryn Montgomery, a communications professor at American University and one of the main advocates who helped get COPPA passed.

Hundreds of users were left clueless when they found their favourite social network messenger/chatting service, Facebook messenger down due to a worldwide outage.

Facebook in its response wrote: "On Thursday November 30 just after midnight Pacific time we bacame aware that a few people were having issues with their Messenger accounts".

"New aspects of the product will emerge", said Montgomery, in her role as a senior consultant for the Center for Digital Democracy.

Messenger Kids will only downloadable in the U.S. and is available on iOS.

Kaspersky Labs' David Emm recommends parents to openly talk to their children about cyberbullying and the potential dangers of chatting online.

The child would not be given their own Facebook account, which is prohibited for those under 13.

Safety also remains a major question for any online kids product. As with Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat, children can add filters or playful drawings to the photos they send.

Kids don't get a separate Facebook or Messenger account; rather, it will be a feature which will be given an extension to their parent's account.

Marketing mattersFacebook said Messenger Kids will not display any advertisements or it will not collect data for marketing, though it will collect some data so that the app can necessary to run the service. According to a release, Facebook plans to release the app on other platforms such as the Amazon App Store, and the Google Play Store. For now the social network giant has announce it only for IOS devices.

She's anxious that introducing a Facebook product to young kids is only going to make them want to use the main Facebook product, as well as other apps like this.

Even so, child heath experts like Dunaway remain skeptical.
