How we’ve used co-design to develop parental supervision tools at Meta
TTC Labs (Trust, Transparency and Control Labs) is a cross-industry effort to create innovative design solutions that put people in control of their privacy, initiated and supported by Meta. Through our partnership with Meta, we brought together teens, parents/guardians, academics, regulators and civil society to uncover product-relevant insights and principles.
Designing digital products for young people presents unique challenges. As obvious as it may seem, it can be easy to forget that teens are not miniature adults, but a population with distinct and rapidly-evolving needs, goals and motivations. As product makers, we also recognize that we don’t have all the answers, and that gathering young people’s perspectives on the technologies that impact their lives is essential to ensuring their needs are met.
