Families who Previously sued Social Media Firms are now Handling the Situation on their Own

Daniel Puerta, Jaime Puerta’s 16-year-old son, passed away four years ago after ingesting a fake oxycodone pill composed entirely of fentanyl, an illegal narcotic substance, which he had bought from a dealer he had met on Snapchat. Puerta brought a wrongful death case against Snapchat in 2022. His case was among the first at the time to claim that children’s health was at risk due to social media use.

Matthew Bergman, the founder of the Social Media Victims Law Center, where many of these lawsuits have been filed, claims there are currently hundreds of these complaints against social media providers, stating teens across the nation have suffered from exposure to social media. Families claim that their children purchased narcotics using social media in a few of the incidents.

On their websites, Meta, TikTok, and Snapchat state that they don’t allow content that encourages self-harm or the selling of prescription or narcotic medications. Additionally, the platforms include tools that let parents limit how long their teenagers may spend on the applications, check the age of users, and limit who they can chat with. These are complex issues, but we will continue working with experts and listening to parents to develop new tools, features, and policies that are effective and meet the needs of teens and their families.”
