Meta Platforms Inc. CEO Mark Zuckerberg will address the US Senate Judiciary Committee to refute the claim that social media harms youth mental health. Zuckerberg will defend Meta's child safety policies and promote Facebook and Instagram in his congressional remarks. He will lobby lawmakers for age verification systems, parental controls, and industry-wide age-appropriate content standards.

Zuckerberg will say, "Teens do amazing things on our services," emphasizing how social media helps them connect, share information, and entertain. Meta's $20 billion investment in child safety since 2016 and over 40,000 safety and security employees will be highlighted.

Meta's dedication to safe and age-appropriate teen experiences and providing parents with tools to regulate them is stated by Zuckerberg. Meta has released over 30 tools and services to help parents and kids navigate the digital world over the past eight years.

The Senate hearing on online child safety will include TikTok, X (previously Google X), Discord Inc., and Snap Inc. CEOs. Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel will discuss Snapchat's fights against extortion, child sexual abuse, and illegal narcotics in his planned remarks. The hearing, available online, reveals how major social media networks protect users.
