Why Illinois' attorney general is suing Meta
Driving the news: The state attorneys general filed a lawsuit Tuesday that also accuses Meta of falsely assuring the public that those features were safe.
Why it matters: Recent research shows that adolescents who spend more than three hours per day on social media face double the risk of depression and anxiety.
What they're saying: "The addictive features on Meta's social media platforms interfere with sleep and education, enable cyberbullying, and contribute to depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia and thoughts of self-harm," Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul said in a statement.
