Briefly

During his State of the City address, New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared social media a "public health hazard" and called for tech companies to take responsibility for their platforms.
"Today, Dr. Ashwin Vasan is issuing a Health Commissioner's Advisory, officially designating social media as a public health hazard in New York City," he said. "We are the first major American city to take this step and call out the danger of social media like this."
Adams specifically called out platforms like TikTok, YouTube, and Facebook, accusing them of designing their platforms with addictive and dangerous features.
"Just as the surgeon general did with tobacco and guns, we are treating social media like other public health hazards and ensuring that tech companies take responsibility for their products," Adams said.
