Indiana sues TikTok on security, children’s access to adult content, WSJ says

The State of Indiana sued social media platform TikTok on Wednesday, for deception of consumers with its claims on content and data security and said the platform should be barred from "allowing children to access adult content, including about sex, profanity and drugs," reported Erin Mulvaney for the Wall Street Journal. In the "first of their kind" lawsuit, Indiana cites studies that show extreme use of the platform may be linked to to "mental disorders among teenagers, including eating disorders," added the WSJ story. Other social media companies that may be impacted include YouTube (GOOG, GOOGL), Meta Platforms (META) and Snap (SNAP). Reference Link
