YouTube, TikTok, Snapchat Defend Teen Privacy Plans Amid Facebook Scrutiny – Bloomberg

Social media companies YouTube, TikTok and Snap sought to distance themselves from rival Facebook Inc. Tuesday as lawmakers pressed for legislation to codify privacy protections for kids and teens on their platforms.
The executives appeared at a Senate committee hearing a day after a consortium of 17 news outlets, including Bloomberg, published dozens of articles based on troves of leaked Facebook data that detailed how the company prioritized profits over the safety of users — particularly teenagers — on its products.
