Facebook Scraps "Instagram Kids" As Backlash Intensifies

• Zero Hedge

After being asked by a cadre of 40 state attorneys general to abandon the project (on the grounds it would be bad for psychological development and also create a 'predator's paradise'), Facebook's Instagram announced Monday in a blog post that it has finally abandoned its ill-fated "Instagram Kids" service which was supposed to create a parallel version of the service for children under the age of 13.

As it stands now, many (poorly supervised) youngsters are already using the adult versions of these services, being exposed to all the age-inappropriate content that comes with it (twitter still has straight-up porn).
