California parents could soon hold social media companies accountable for the harm they cause their children.
On Monday, the State Legislature passed a bill which would allow parents of kids who have become addicted to social media, to file lawsuits against companies like Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter for damages up to $25,000 for each violation.
It now heads to the State Senate where it faces heavy debate and possible amendments.
The proposal would only apply to companies who have $100 million in gross revenue holdings the last fiscal year.
Streaming platforms like Netflix and Hulu would not be impacted if the bill becomes law.
