Following Whistleblower's Allegations, Facebook Announces Security Changes

The company says it will add new safety features, notably for teens on Instagram

Facebook will implement new tools to divert users away from harmful content, limit political content and give parents more control on teen Instagram accounts, Nick Glegg, the company's vice president of global affairs, told several morning news shows Sunday.

Though Clegg did not elaborate on the specifics of the tools, he told ABC's 'This Week' that one measure would urge users who are on Facebook's platform Instagram for long periods of time to "take a break." Another feature will nudge teens looking at content harmful to their well-being to look at something else, he said.

Clegg also said the company’s planned Instagram Kids, a service for children 13 and younger the company recently paused, is a part of the solution.
