The French government has passed a law that provides social media companies a full one-hour grace period to remove pedophilic and terroristic posts from their platforms and a full day to take down any content the government deems “manifestly illicit” before being hammered with massive fines.

How social media sites, which have already proven themselves ineffective at policing their users’ behaviors, are supposed to comply with this legislation remains to be seen. However, with 4 percent of their annual global revenue at stake, social media companies are certain to find a way.
