California Kids Get Social Media ‘Eraser’—But It Might not Work
Note: infoDOCKET first posted the California teen social “media eraser” about two weeks ago.
Many thanks to Lauren Barack for including some of these thoughts in her new article for The Digital Shift.
From Lauren Barack’s Article:
Signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown last month, the bill, SB 568, enables California minors to permanently delete postings and commits social media sites, like Twitter and Facebook, to help kids do that, beginning in January 2015. While some praise the first law of its kind to enable kids to delete regrettable content—think risqué photos or profane Tweets—others believe the law could cause more trouble than it aims to solve.
