FTC Proposes to Ban Meta from Monetizing Kids’ Data

Most proposals to limit the harm that social media does to kids and teens aim at restricting the youngsters’ access to those services.  The U.S. Federal Trade Commission just aimed closer to root causes by proposing to ban Meta from making any money off its young users.  The ban is framed as an adjustment to the company’s 2020 privacy settlement, which the FTC says the company has consistently violated.
