Instagram for kids paused after backlash

Plans to make an "Instagram experience" for under-13s, dubbed Instagram Kids, have been paused, reports BBC.

Facebook would use the time to listen to "parents, experts, policymakers and regulators", Instagram head Adam Mosseri wrote.

It follows leaked internal research the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) said Instagram was "toxic for teen girls".

Instagram requires users to be at least 13 before they create an account - but many children under that age use the platform anyway.
