Welcome to The Connected Church news!
Our final news of this week is about social media channels and their new tools and policies related to children or kids.
Last week, we saw the Top 4 social media channels release new policies related to children, and also some new features. For example, Google talked about their Family Link feature, which we have talked about earlier in this news bulletin, and the new policies and updates that they are bringing to that feature. YouTube talked about the new promotional guidelines and defaults that they are having for YouTube Kids, and kids related content.
Facebook released a new guide for parents as children start going to school in the next few weeks. Children start going to school in certain countries, and Facebook has released a guide for that, a guide for parents. TikTok has released new features and prompts related to young users and teens. It’s interesting to see all these news about kids being released at the same week. I’m going to give links to all of this in the show notes. I know some of you listening to me work in the nonprofit space that helps children, you are also in children’s ministry as churches.
