Viral Voices: Whose Responsibility?
Recent events have again raised questions about the impact that online speech has in disseminating misinformation and even promoting violence with potential negative consequences for personal safety, the resilience of democracies, and public health. The debate about regulation has led some to argue for robust and systematic self-regulation by social media companies themselves. Others maintain that this form of top-down decision making often abridges free speech and suppresses unpopular opinions. Social media companies have long resisted becoming the sole arbiters of free speech on their platforms. In line with this, several of them (Reddit, Facebook, Twitter) are trying to develop new approaches to strike a balance between free speech and a healthy online environment. Following these themes, the virtual event will revolve around the framing question: How can social media both protect free speech and, at the same time, combat the spread of misinformation and protect users and others from harm?
