Shadowbans, nudity, censorship and moderation: how can we effectively moderate social media content without affecting freedom of speech?
In this session, I will draw from my academic research on online abuse, conspiracy theories and content moderation and from my activism around Instagram censorship of nudity. I will start by telling my story - from receiving an apology from Instagram about censoring pole dance in 2019, to launching the #EveryBODYVisible global anti-censorship campaign on the platform. Considering that, particularly in a global pandemic, online visibility is essential for workers, creators and marginalised communities, I hope to start the conversation on the visibility of bodies and on what audiences consider acceptable online content.
