The anguish of parents for the hours that their children are stuck on social networks, could have the days numbered in the state of California, since an approved bill by the state Assembly on May 23, will allow parents to sue companies that provide these services for addiction.

This means that parents will be able to sue TikTok, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram either Snapchat or others, if your children do not take off the cell phone.

the billco-sponsored and authored by state Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham, would allow parents to sue social media platforms for up to $25,000 per violation on behalf of children.

The bill aims to protect “child users,” defined as children under the age of 18 who use a social media platform, from becoming addicted to social media.

According to the bill, social media addiction is defined as a preoccupation, obsession, or difficulty in reducing the use of a social media platform that causes or contributes to mental, emotional, developmental, or physical harm to the user.
