Instagram Introduces New Age-Verification Tools For UK Users
With the launch of new age-verification tools, Instagram has made it easier for users to verify their age.
Instagram is a popular social media platform that has become the go-to platform for many people. It is also one of the most lucrative platforms for marketers and brands.
The company has introduced a new age verification system called IGTV, which will help to verify users’ age on Instagram. The system will allow users to post videos and photos with their face visible to check their age. This feature is currently available in India only and will be rolled out in other countries soon. Users who are not verified can still use the app but they may have to pay extra money to be verified as well as take an additional step of uploading a selfie or video with their face visible before posting anything on Instagram.
Tara Hopkins, public policy director, said: “We want everyone to experience Instagram in a way that’s appropriate for their age.”
However, Richard Collard, of the NSPCC, said: “These measures will seemingly do little to stop new young users creating adult accounts
Instagram is one of the most popular social media platforms in the world. It has over 500 million active monthly users.
The company is also a media company, and has been ranked as one of the top social media sites for brands by Ad Age.
The platform has developed an extensive user base, which includes professional photographers, fashion designers and celebrities. The popularity of Instagram among young people could be attributed to its ability to help them express their creativity and emotions through photos or videos that they take on their mobile phones (or camera).
