Social media has consumed many of days for kids and adults alike around the world. Now, one country wants to change the Facebook game.
Regulators in the UK are mulling new social media rules that would keep children from smashing that ‘like’ button. The proposed rules would ban so-called “nudge techniques” used by social media companies to keep people using their site on a daily basis. Examples of “nudge techniques” include Facebook ‘likes’ and Snapchat ‘streaks’
The new rules also call for a more ‘robust’ age-verification system, better privacy, and restrictions on what data can be collected by the companies.
Can you imagine Facebook without ‘likes’?
