"We are not convinced that Meta has done enough to comply with its Digital Services Act obligations to reduce the risks of adverse effects on the physical and mental health of young Europeans," said Thierry Breton, EU commissioner for the internal market.

The European Union accuses META of failing to comply with the requirements of laws designed to protect children's mental health.

The research will investigate the potential addictive effects of platforms where an algorithm feeds young people negative content, such as body image, called the "rabbit hole effect".

It will also look at the effectiveness of Meta's age verification tools and privacy for minors. "We spare no effort to protect our children," Breton said.
