Online protections for children on social media platforms have certainly been lacking. Children are served-up content online that is extremely damaging, whether it be sexual in nature or topics that are violent and/or deal with suicide. Research shows that children viewing self-harm content can land on a path to harming themselves.
Social media platforms have done little to address the exploitation of children, but new strides may be ushering in protections. The Kids Online Safety Act (KOSA) aims to direct platforms to prevent the recommendation of harmful content to children, like posts on eating disorders or suicide.
