Designing up to date content moderation principles for a new social network
The “networked public sphere” has become an inevitable space for civic engagement and is growing into the primary source of civic and political information. In a scenario of increasing political and social tension and complexity, the task of content moderation is escalating into a public challenge, of which social media giants are the central actors. The thin line between ensuring safe spaces and fighting misinformation through content moderation vs. impinging on freedom of expression and/or mistakenly silencing population subgroups, raises crucial questions at the intersection of philosophical considerations and technology solutions. This session is an opportunity to imagine what ideal content moderation guidelines should look like, in light of the most recent events and challenges. The outputs of the discussion will serve as inputs for the incipient social-network learning space ‘Eureka’ (https://www.abouteureka.club/ ).
