Join our founder Carrie Goldberg and other esteemed panelists for a discussion about Social Media Content Moderation! On Thursday, July 8th 4–6p.m., the FCBA will present this third and final session in their Online Platform Regulation Series, via Zoom.
- What are the current content moderation practices in social media?
- How does the Section 230 case law affect these practices?
- What challenges do platforms that must engage in content moderation face?
- What obligations do they have to the public?
- Can misinformation/disinformation on social media be prevented?
- Can/should algorithms be regulated or at least better understood, and how could this be done?
- Are private sector solutions (e.g., oversight boards, greater competition) helping to ameliorate problems of misinformation/disinformation on social media?
- Do Fairness Doctrine-like principles have a role in social media?
- Platforms v. Publishers: What are the implications of the Australian experience with Facebook?
