Many Ask Why Does Facebook & Social Media Largely Ignore Scammers?

It is an unforeseen consequence of United States Code 47 U.S.C. § 230, a Provision of the Communication Decency Act

The provisions of the Communications Decency Act (CDA) of 1996 was designed to allow the Internet to grow and prosper.

Unfortunately, it provides immunity from liability to Internet publishers such as Facebook. We need to change this so they are responsible for policing their platforms, websites, and applicationsApplications Applications or Apps An application (software), commonly referred to as an ‘app’ is a program on a computer, tablet, mobile phone or device. Apps are designed for specific tasks, including checking the weather, accessing the internet, looking at photos, playing media, mobile banking, etc. Many apps can access the internet if needed and can be downloaded (used) either for a price or for free. Apps are a major point of vulnerability on all devices. Some are designed to be malicious, such as logging keystrokes or activity, and others can even transport malware. Always be careful about any app you are thinking about installing. on the Internet.

To do this the law must be revised.
