Jeremy Hunt has warned Facebook to “stay away from my kids” after the social media giant launched a new app for children. According to Facebook, Messenger Kids is "a new app that makes it easier for kids to safely video chat and message with family and friends when they can’t be together in person". Facebook announced this week it is trialling a new version of its popular Messenger app for children under the age of 13. "Stay away from my kids please Facebook and act responsibly!" Messenger Kids, which is being trialled in the United States, is aimed at children who cannot yet have their own accounts under Facebook's rules.
