How does *anyone* put effective guardrails into social media to definitively prevent predation? That's the demand of the congress critters.
As I see it there are several technological alternatives to solve this:
- AI scanning of all conversations on the platform, across the board.
- An internet ID a la fascistic Nikki Haley.
- Some long assed tedious process where you have to send the site some kind of birth date information such as a birth certificate or driver's license. Basically a one site internet ID.
I suspect it will fall down to AI plus humans who snoop on the most juicy conversations that get flagged.
