Instagram hopes its new Parents Guide helps parents manage their kids' use of Instagram. The guide walks parents through three main areas of focus, including privacy, interactions, and time. For example, it will teach parents how to set appropriate privacy safeguards to protect their teens from unwanted interactions. It details comment controls and the ability to report unwanted interactions, as well as manage time spent within the app. Last, the app offers suggestions on how parents can approach their teens and discuss their experiences on Instagram. The company says it worked with educators and social media experts to develop these tools. The guide arrives as more companies are looking to help people manage their experiences with phones. For example, both Apple and Google have introduced tools into their respective mobile operating systems that track usage and offer ways to cut back on screen time. Instagram's Parents Guide is available online.
