The British coroner and the new regulatory arm of the British Government, have found against Instagram, in the suicide of 14 yr old Molly Russell. The Coroner decided that Meta was responsible for showing harmful content to a young teenager, 6 months prior to her suicide. In America, there is no Law regulating content appropriate for teenage viewing. In Australia, they’ve determined that content provided on online platforms must be regulated as well.
