“Today, the @FTC launched an inquiry into the social media and video streaming industry.

We have ordered several firms to detail their user surveillance and behavioral advertising practices, including:
TikTok_us, Facebook, Amazon, Snapchat, YouTube, Reddit, Discord , Twitter”

About time!

This inquiry should shed light on “how these companies track individuals, mine personal data, deploy algorithms, and monetize user behavior, as well as how these practices impact children. We expect that compliance with this order will be fast and fulsome”
