Join us for an FCBA discussion about Social Media Content Moderation

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? 
  • What should be the public interest policymaking priorities for content moderation?


The session will explore these questions and more!
