How Much Should Social Media Websites be Responsible for your Children's Safety?


Recommended Posts

Am sure many of you have heard the grilling of prominent social media CEOs in the US.

At times being told they have "blood on their hands", even pressuring an apology from one of them.

Many of the stories, sobering. Minors victims of sexploitation. Luring. Etc.

Some taking their own lives, after the traumatic experiences.

How much responsibility does a social media website bear for overall safety?

How much of it is not their responsibility?

Could anything be done to reduce these risks?

Little to none. That's what parents are for. It's amazing to me how averse so many people are these days to taking responsibility for themselves.

The Zucc would apologize to anyone or for anything if it warranted money for him.

The 'but have you thought of the children?' point is ridiculous to say the least. All these things that you mentioned such as luring, sexual exploitation, suicide are possible without social media. Social media can also help expose those who partake in shady things as much as it helps those who perpetrate them.

Parents are the ultimate line of defence for their children. Not a multinational corporation and a clearly corrupt government.

Unfortunately it seems like its the job of others to raise your kids, but look out if you happen to discipline those kids.

I kind of see it like demanding McDonald's to serve healthy options only. 

How about not eating their food, daily?

Just because you want to stuff your face without repercussions, doesn't obligate McDicks to give a crap about it.

It's sad what we've become. 

This victim mentality has taken hold.

And people are shocked at the staggering volume of people suffering from mental health crises?

This is exactly right. The left has created this narrative that if you don't have what others have it's because others have prevented you from getting it or have stolen it from you.

I just saw that video today (the ~1h~30min version from Guardian). This Blackburn (I might remember the last name wrong) seems to expect Facebook to convert to a daycare. Otherwise what is to "put the children first" or similar thing she said. I really don't get what I watched. I have to agree with the comments under the video that called it a show, entertainment, etc. Really not what I was expecting (first time coming close to politics consciously). If anyone knows somewhere else where this particular "hearing" is being discussed I would like to know. I'm quite puzzled.
