Hey #privacy #DigitalHumanRights #fediverse, what are your thoughts about age verification on-line?

The #DigitalServicesAct might ban ads targeting children. Of course, the question is: how to implement it?

The advertisers will insist this is "hard"or "impossible". One possible response is to say: well you created this problem, you fix it. If you want targeted ads, figure out how to *not* target kids.

But that's effectively leaving this in the hands of #BigTech.


@rysiek The risks of forcing people to verify their ID for any service are much worse than the risk of kids being convinced they want Spiderman branded Pop Tarts.
