Florida Passes Law Banning Social Media for Minors Under 14

26 March 2024

Under the new law, social-media companies are required to close accounts believed to be used by minors under 14.

Minors who are 14- or 15-years old can obtain a social-media account with parental consent, according to the new law.

A representative for Snap declined to comment. A representative for Meta Platforms didn’t immediately comment.

Similar legislation has been proposed in other states, but those bills stop short of the total ban enacted in Florida.

NetChoice, a tech-industry trade association whose members include Facebook parent Meta Platforms, TikTok and Snap, sued to stop the Arkansas law last June.
