Rep. Jared Patterson, of Frisco has presented a bill in Texas that would ban all social media for anyone under 18.

"social media companies would have to verify the age of the account holder, which would require the account holder to prove their age with their driver’s license. The bill doesn’t specify if an account holder can use an alternate form of I.D. if they don’t have a driver’s license. Social media companies would also be required to remove a child’s account if a parent requests it be taken down within 10 days of the request. Platforms would also need to provide accessible means for parents to make such requests."

It hasn't passed just yet so we'll have to wait and see if this would even work.
