The Hill reports YouTube will be rolling out a separate website for children's videos to comply with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act. The plan is to take the format from the YouTube Kids app and turn it into a website. YouTube also announced parents now have the ability to choose age-appropriate content curated for their kids. The new site and its halt on targeted ads for children are potentially part of YouTube's upcoming settlement with the U.S. Federal Trade Commission, which has also had dialogue with Facebook about its flawed Messenger Kids app. Meanwhile, U.S. Sens. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., wrote a letter to Facebook seeking more details about the issues with Kids Messenger. Editor's Note: IAPP Staff Writer Joe Duball recently wrote for The Privacy Advisor on the FTC reviewing COPPA for potential amendments.
