Senators Question Zuckerberg About Privacy Protection in Messenger Kids

Democratic U.S. senators Edward Markey and Richard Blumenthal have written to Facebook Inc. questioning whether there was a “worrying pattern” of poor privacy protection for children using its Messenger Kids app. The senators were "disturbed" to learn that the application allowed thousands of children to join group chats in which not all members of the group were approved by their parents, they said in a letter addressed to Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg.
