Starting on January 17th, 2023 experiences without Guidelines will no longer be recommended to users under the age of nine. The age recommendations of experiences will also begin to inform Search & Discovery.
Since launching in September, Experience Guidelines have seen widespread adoption and the vast majority of engagement is now being spent in experiences with completed guidelines. Experience Guidelines help users make more informed decisions on the content and experiences they interact with. Alongside this launch, we upgraded our parental controls to allow parents to customize which experiences their child can join.
This next step helps users of all ages and parents find content that is appropriate for them.
If you have not yet completed your Experience Questionnaire and received your Age Recommendation, we strongly recommend that you do this. You can do this for each of your experiences on the Creator Dashboard. If you fill out the questionnaire and you believe that the rating does not match your intended audience, you can review the content in your experience to see if there are adjustments you can make so that your experience is appropriate for your target audience.
Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback below!
