Social media services like Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube have become incredible platforms for the open exchange of information, the sharing of ideas and opinions, and the reporting of news through citizen journalism. At the same time, these platforms have been used by some as vehicles to spread propaganda, fake news, and extremism. Please join us for a discussion aimed at gaining a better understanding of how social media companies try to limit and eliminate objectionable content online and the challenges involved in doing so. Audience questions will be highly encouraged.
