Roxana Marachi

Dr. Roxana Marachi was quoted in the article "Instagram and teens: How to keep your kids safe" by the Associated Press.

Parents should also realize that it’s not a fair fight. Social media apps like Instagram are designed to be addictive, says Roxana Marachi, a professor of education at San Jose State University who studies data harms. Without new laws that regulate how tech companies use our data and algorithms to push users toward harmful content, there is only so much parents can do, Marachi said.
