Social Media is Harmful to Children

from TPPF,

What to Know: Instagram and other social media giants are facing lawsuits and accusations that their content and algorithms are harming the mental health of children. The TPPF Take: It’s time to regulate social media for minors, just as we regulate alcohol and tobacco. “The fact of the matter is that the limited benefits minors get from social media are not worth their lives,” says TPPF’s Zach Whiting. “No amount of mental illness and physical anguish is worth the ‘connectivity’ that can easily be made through in-person interaction. But if you still aren’t convinced, know this: social media’s own executives and tycoons are wary of their product’s powerful influence on children.”
