  1. Amazing techy headlines we have here today, but i will be airing my views on the facts that was called out Facebook To End Its Messaging App For Kids,

    according to him, he made it known that it was for 13years and above, but looking it from another angle i think discontinuing it is not a set back, i said so because allowing it to be accepted is capable of creating some negative impacts on the children,
    yes in the sense of towing and practicing what they learnt secretly from Adults, e.g partially sharing nudity, and that's how it starts...
