In NC, our attorney general, Josh Stein, is part of a group of attorneys general who are suing Meta over Instagram’s targeting of teens and addictive nature.

“Facebook has spent untold billions of dollars … figuring out how to design this to maximize its addictiveness, and we want them to change the parts of the platform that serve to be addictive,” Stein said, noting features like infinite scrolling and how content is suggested to teens.

Frankly, I’m glad to see someone going after Meta for how it builds and targets its product. We know that Instagram can be detrimental to teen mental health (especially for girls), and we know that there are other ways of managing a social media service.
