Utah social media law means kids need approval from parents


Utah is taking aim at social media access for teens. I'm Lisa dwyer. Utah has become the first state to sign into law, legislation that attempts to limit teenagers access to social media sites. Republican governor Spencer Cox signed a pair of measures that aim to limit when and where children can use social media and stop companies from learning kids to their sites, the law requires companies to give parents access to their children's accounts, puts a curfew on social media use from ten 30 p.m. to 6 30 a.m., as well as age verification for all Utah residents who want to use social media. Other states, such as Arkansas, Texas, Ohio, and Louisiana, a similar bills in the works. Utah's law will take effect March 2024 and court challenges are expected
