Irresponsible social media companies are engaged in deliberate practices that are causing mental and physical harm, especially among young girls and teenagers.

The content we see on social media platforms is not random. Platforms are engineered to identify the most engaging content for each user and bombard the user with this content until they are addicted.

Social media companies prey on the vulnerable, the impressionable, the insecure, and the very young.

Social media companies are making huge profits at the expense of human suffering. It’s time we hold them accountable.

Have You or Your Family Experienced any of the following:

  • Depression
  • Eating disorders
  • Suicide
  • Self-Harm
  • Serious Bodily Harm
  • Mental Disorders
  • Cyber bullying, a risk factor for depression and suicide

If so, you and your family may be eligible for compensation. Have you been forced to retain mental health professionals to treat a loved one addicted to social media? Have you been forced to pay for prescription medication to treat a loved one addicted to social media? Please Contact Us.



The definition of ADDICTION is ‘the fact or condition of being addicted to a particular substance, thing, or activity.’

The definition of MENTAL HEALTH is ‘a state of well-being in which people understand their abilities, solve everyday life problems, work well, and make a significant contribution to the lives of their communities.’

Social Media sites have knowingly put young users in harm’s way to generate billions of dollars in profits.

Studies have found that using social media platforms can have a detrimental effect on the psychological health of its users. Studies have found that the youth of today are becoming increasingly addicted to social media, similar to the youth of the 1960s and 1970s with regards to tobacco use.

What’s the difference between SMOKING TOBACCO in the 1960s/70s and SOCIAL MEDIA today?

  1. BOTH developed business models that thrive on the youth.
    • Smoking is “cool” and “helps” you will fit it with your friends.
    • Social Media builds false reality related to popularity, beauty, being “cool”.
  2. BOTH are NOT SAFE.
  3. BOTH are HARMFUL to minors.
  4. BOTH FAILED TO WARN about the dangers.
  5. BOTH marketed and promoted their product as being safe despite knowing of the risks these products posed to users’ mental and physical health.

In the U.S., the suicide rate has risen

  1. 34%
    for teenage boys
  2. 82%
    for teenage girls

Heavy social media usage for young girls is correlated more strongly with anxiety and depression than heroin use.

Social Media companies have long been broadly protected from lawsuits. This could be changing. For decades, they have been shielded from legal consequences for what happens on their platforms. However, 2022 has seen a shift in public opinion and a change in recent court rulings that have the social media industry nervous.
