New Florida state bill bans children under 14 having social media accounts

How many violations do you see happening.........

"Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a bill on Monday that will prohibit children younger than 14 from joining social media in the state. Those who are 14 or 15 will need a parent’s consent before they join a platform.

The bill, HB3, also directs social media companies to delete the existing accounts of those who are under 14. Companies that fail to do so could be sued on behalf of the child who creates an account on the platform. The minor could be awarded up to $10,000 in damages, according to the bill. Companies found to be in violation of the law would also be liable for up to $50,000 per violation, as well as attorney’s fees and court costs.

“Ultimately, [we’re] trying to help parents navigate this very difficult terrain that we have now with raising kids, and so I appreciate the work that’s been put in,” DeSantis said in remarks during the bill-signing ceremony.

DeSantis previously vetoed a more restrictive version of the bill that would have banned social media accounts for kids under 16. That bill also required Florida residents to submit an ID or other identifying materials in order to join social media.

HB3, which is slated to take effect in January 2025, comes as efforts to regulate social media continue to ramp up across the U.S. amid concerns from some parents that the platforms don’t do enough to keep their kids safe online."

I can see the intent here and it is in good faith. Protect kids by making their parents responsible, the part that I see potentially being abused is "The minor could be awarded up to $10,000 in damages" how many minors will think this is a good way to earn some cash.
Now the other issue I have is many 14 year olds today are on their mobile phones posting when they ate, where they are going....., drink, smoke and have sex and post about it. You really think banning 14 year olds form having a social media account is going to be practical?
