Social media causes harm. You deserve compensation.

Despite the fact that they’ve been proven to cause harm to their users, social media companies are still profiting (to the tune of billions of dollars).

But they still haven’t been required to compensate the people who have suffered so that their advertisers could increase profits.

Consumer protection is a longstanding tradition in our legal system. How else can we protect individuals from powerful companies that have been going with their power unchecked for too long?

How social media causes harm to its users

Social media companies like Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, and Twitter have made billions of dollars off your attention.

They’ve perfected their algorithms to make it extremely difficult to log off.

Who benefits from our collective addiction to social media? Businesses who advertise there and the social media companies who charge them for the privilege of your attention.

Social media lets companies track your data and use it in their advertisements — everything you spend time looking and everything you search for online is up for grabs.

And if that means advertising diet pills to consumers who have looked at anorexia-related content? Or advertising fitness regimens to those who have searched for resources on exercise addiction?

Even advertising that can worsen your mental health is considered fair game — because it makes social media companies money.

This is why social media companies have done next to nothing to prevent their algorithms from causing harm.

If you have been diagnosed and treated for an eating disorder or mental illness, you’ve probably incurred significant expenses. And now, you may be eligible for compensation for this harm.

We are here to help. We are going to seek justice for those harmed by social media by holding these companies accountable for the harm they’ve caused.
