WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Instagram head Adam Mosseri will testify on Dec. 8 at a U.S. Senate subcommittee hearing on “protecting kids online,” the panel said on Wednesday.

“This hearing will address what Instagram knows about its impacts on young users, its commitments to reform, and potential legislative solutions,” the Senate Commerce subcommittee on consumer protection, product safety and data security said.
