Instagramが10代ユーザーのアカウントをデフォルトで非公開に、広告や望まない大人からの接触を制限 - 08月02日(月)16:45 

Instagram(インスタグラム)は米国時間7月27日朝、若年層のアクセス拡大に向けて、同社のアプリを10代のオンラインユーザーにとってより安全な場所にするため、いくつかのアップデートを発表した。同社によると、ユーザーが16歳未満(EUを含む一部の地域では18歳未満)の場合、サインアップの際、デフォルトで非公開アカウントに設定される。 また、16歳未満の既存ユーザーがまだアカウントを非公開に切り替えていない場合は、非公開に設定するように促す。加えて同社は、他の10代のユーザーからブロックされたり報告されたりした大人からの迷惑なコンタクトを抑制することを目的とした新しいテクノロジーを導入するとともに、広告主が10代のユーザーにリーチする方法も変更する。 若年層のユーザーにとって最も注目すべき変更は、非公開アカウントへの移行だ。 これまで、ユーザーがInstagramの新規アカウントを登録する際には、公開アカウントか非公開アカウントのどちらかを選択するよう求められていた。しかし、Instagramによる調査の結果、若年層ユーザーの10人中8人が登録時に「非公開」を選択していたことが判明したため、今後は16歳未満のユーザーに対しては「非公開」をデフォルトにするという。 画像クレジット:Instagram ただし、16歳未満のユーザーに「非公開」であり続けることを強制するものではない。登...more
