FL: DeSantis signs fantasy ban on kids using social media

Source: Tampa Bay Times

“Gov. Ron DeSantis on Monday signed a bill blocking most kids from social media websites, setting up an expected court battle that could prevent the legislation from ever taking effect. House Bill 3, passed by lawmakers with bipartisan support this month, forbids kids 13 and younger from creating social media accounts and requires the platforms to seek out and remove their profiles. Kids 14 and 15 would need a parents’ consent. The legislation also blocks all minors from adult websites, requiring all visitors to prove their age before viewing content.” (03/25/24)
