The CEOs of the nation’s largest social media platforms were grilled by Congress Wednesday over concerns that their companies are not doing enough to protect teens and children online.

The hearing, “Big Tech and the Online Child Sexual Exploitation Crisis,” had lawmakers from both sides of the aisle questioning Mark Zuckerberg, CEO of Facebook and Instagram’s parent company Meta, and the leaders of TikTok, Snap, Discord and X over their platform’s safety features.

“I use it, we all use it, there’s an upside to everything here. But the dark side hasn’t been dealt with,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said during the hearing. “It’s now time to deal with the dark side because people have taken your idea, and they’ve turned it into a nightmare for the American people.”
