34 U.S. states are suing the social media giant Meta, alleging that Facebook and Instagram are inappropriately manipulating the children who use them. The lawsuit claims Meta’s claims of a safe experience for young users are false and misleading and that they have harnessed powerful and unprecedented technologies to entice, engage, and ultimately ensnare youth and teens. Meta has responded by saying they have introduced over 30 tools to support teens and their families, and that research on social media’s negative impact is inconclusive. The states are demanding damages, restitution, and compensation for each state, and Meta has said the best path forward is to develop broad and universal policies that apply to all social platforms. This is bad news for Meta and the tech industry as a whole, as they are being held accountable for their manipulation of young people and potential negative impacts on their mental health. #Meta #SocialMedia #Lawsuit #MentalHealth
