Last month, Facebook launched Messenger Kids for children under the age of 13. Now, some are calling on the social media site to pull the plug.

When CBS2 first reported about the app in early December, reaction was mixed.

“Yeah, it seems fun and cool,” one boy said.

“No, I like to keep their innocence as long as possible,” a father added.

Now, a group of 100 childhood experts and advocates want it deleted. Led by the Boston-based Campaign for Commercial-Free Childhood, psychiatrists, pediatricians, educators and one children’s music singer have teamed up to send Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg a letter.
