Not quite sure how this is meant to work, we will all need ID cards (biometric) before too long that can be read by computers just so we can prove our age etc, which will be promoted as age verification but in reality will be a path to a back door police state.

Under-18s face 'like' and 'streaks' limits on social media


https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-47933521

This could cause a few issues, what if you're playing a sports game and are on a good winning streak, sometimes you're on a roll and keep playing. I can understand some of the advertising stuff, maybe we get people to come here, they can click, like, dislike, share etc as much as they want, and not a shred of data is collated on them (at least I think that is the case).
