Business

This week, Facebook made some new security changes to its site and Instagram, which it also controls.

This comes as U.S. Surgeon General Vivek Murthy joined the safety-concerned chorus of those blasting the social media giant for having something called “Instagram Youth” or “Instagram for Youth” in development.
