Senators demand Mark Zuckerberg produce details on Instagram's ‘warning screens' that allowed users to see potential child sex abuse material

Senators on the Judiciary Committee have demanded information from Meta regarding Instagram’s now-shuttered “warning screens” for potential child sexual abuse material. The demand comes after a hearing where Meta CEO Mark Zuckerberg was questioned about Instagram’s policies on such content. Both Republicans and Democrats in Congress are seeking to pass legislation to hold social media companies accountable for such material. However, the calendar and the upcoming 2024 elections present challenges to their efforts.
