In a country where privacy protections are considered weak and anything-goes data collection has become the norm, Chinese tech entrepreneur Yang Geng stands out.
YouTube is changing what it shows kids.
Facebook Inc said it had spoken to the US Federal Trade Commission, which recently settled with the social media giant for US$5bil (RM21.05bil) over allegations of privacy violations, about its Messenger Kids app that the company acknowledged had a flaw.
YouTube said it will launch a separate website for children after the Google-owned service was criticized and investigated for showing inappropriate videos to kids on its main site.
Google outlined a plan to try and make surfing the web more private while still allowing enough targeted advertising to keep publishers – and itself – in business.
Earlier this summer, the US Federal Trade Commission began holding private talks with YouTube officials, part of a burgeoning investigation.
To satisfy regulators, YouTube officials are finalising plans to end “targeted” advertisements on videos kids are likely to watch, according to three people familiar with the discussion.

YouTube videos featuring young children drew nearly triple the average viewership of the platform's other content, according to research released on July 25 that provided ammunition for child advocates who want Alphabet Inc to take more aggressive steps to make its streaming service safer for kids.
