Court Document Accuses Meta Of Deliberately Exploiting Children

via ABC

Meta Platforms, the parent company of Facebook, is accused of knowingly designing its platforms to engage and hook kids while failing to disclose millions of complaints about underage users on Instagram and only disabling a small fraction of those accounts.

The lawsuit, filed by the attorneys general of 33 states, cites company documents where Meta officials acknowledged exploiting psychological vulnerabilities in young users and the popularity of Facebook and Instagram among children under 13, despite company policy prohibiting their use.

Meta responded by stating it has tools to support teen safety and favors shifting the responsibility for preventing underage usage to app stores and parents. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

The complaint also highlighted a backlog of up to 2.5 million accounts of younger children awaiting action.
