UK Online Safety Bill aims to hold social media companies accountable for user safety
The UK government is set to pass the Online Safety Bill, which will make social media companies responsible for safety on their platforms. The bill aims to crack down on illegal and harmful content, protect children from age-inappropriate material, and improve media literacy. While campaigners welcome the legislation, critics argue that the design and motives of social media sites should also be examined. Schools are incorporating media literacy into their curriculum to help children navigate the digital world.
