Illinois AG Joins Coalition Suing Meta

Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul is part of a coalition of more than 30 state AGs suing the company that owns and operates Facebook and Instagram. The lawsuit accuses Meta of harmful business practices targeting children. The coalition says Meta designed its social media platforms to include features that exploit young users’ psychological vulnerabilities to keep them using them longer, and that many of these product features are strongly linked to damaging psychological outcomes.
