A kid friendly version of YouTube, called YouTube Kids, launches for Android on February 23, according to a USA Today report. In stats given from YouTube, the streaming site is becoming more of a family hotspot, so it is only natural that Google and YouTube would like to hide kids away from all of the evil things that take place on there.
