Axios reports FTC Commissioner Christine Wilson wants the U.S. Federal Trade Commission to investigate how social media companies incorporate data to create algorithms to send users targeted content. Wilson said, in particular, she supports a study into how those companies use children’s data, as well as a broader look into their data practices. "I think more generally the social media companies that we interact with essentially every day raise significant and important questions that I think the FTC needs to delve deeper into," Wilson said. "So, for example, how information is collected and shared and monetized, and how that feeds into algorithms and how that affects the content curation of the algorithms and the promotion of certain content."
