Facebook has announced a new version of its Messenger chat app designed for children ages six to 12. Called Messenger Kids, the new app does not require a Facebook account since — due to federal law — users under the age of 13 cannot legally sign up for Facebook. Instead, parents are able to manage a child’s Messenger Kids app from their Facebook account, controlling which friends and family members the child is able to contact.
