The report states that the law prohibits social media companies from sending automated feeds to minors.
The WSJ reports that the plan, which is still being finalized but expected to be voted on this week, would prohibit platforms from sending minors notifications overnight without parental consent.

Advocates say Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ March law banning minors under 14 from using social media and requiring 14- and 15-year-olds to get parental consent will protect them from mental health risks online.

March of last year saw Arkansas, Louisiana, Ohio, and Texas pass laws restricting children’s social media use.
Shares of Meta and Snap fell roughly 1% in extended trading.
