Biden accuses social media firms of exploiting children 'for profit'

WASHINGTON, Feb 8, 2023 (BSS/AFP) - President Joe Biden called on US lawmakers Tuesday to restrict how social media lures children and collects their data, as he accused the companies of conducting a "for profit" experiment on the nation's youth.

"We must finally hold social media companies accountable for the experiment they are running on our children for profit," Biden said during his State of the Union Speech before a joint session of Congress.

"And it's time to pass bipartisan legislation to stop Big Tech from collecting personal data on kids and teenagers online, ban targeted advertising to children, and impose stricter limits on the personal data that companies collect on all of us."
