REPORTER: Social media giant Meta, owner of Facebook and Instagram, is accused of violating federal laws on children's privacy. The legal complaint filed by attorneys general in 33 states alleges Instagram coveted and pursued users who were under 13 without parental permission, disabling only a fraction of those underage accounts. In response, Meta tells ABC news, “...we have measures in place to remove these accounts when we identify them. However, verifying the age of people online is a complex industry challenge.”
