YouTube declares war on US election misinformation… a month late

As Twitter and Facebook scrambled to institute new policies for the 2020 election, YouTube was… mostly quiet. The platform didn’t make any flashy announcements about a crackdown on election-related misinformation, nor did it really fully grapple with its massive role in distributing information during what was widely regarded as an extremely volatile time for American democracy. Former Vice President Joe Biden won the presidential election on November 7, but YouTube decided to wait until the ...

Who regulates social media?

Social media platforms have repeatedly found themselves in the United States government’s crosshairs over the last few years, as it has been progressively revealed just how much power they really wield, and to what purposes they’ve chosen to wield it. But unlike, say, a firearm or drug manufacturer, there is no designated authority who says what these platforms can and can’t do. So who regulates them? You might say everyone and no one. Now, it must be made clear at the outset that these companie...

Attorney General William Barr wants to backdoor Facebook's WhatsApp

Disgraced Trump administration Attorney General William Barr and his counterparts in the British and Australian governments plan to push Facebook for an encryption backdoor for WhatsApp and other messaging platforms (perhaps ?).

Facebook’s co-founder made a passionate plea to break up the social network, but legal experts say the idea may be dead on arrival (FB, MSFT)

Facebook co-founder Chris Hughes's proposal to break up the company faces serious legal and political hurdles, legal experts say. They say Hughes raised important issues of accountability that could be fixed by reforming Facebook's corporate governance structure, but it's unlikely to go far on its own. In a New York Times op-ed on Thursday, Hughes called for Facebook to be broken up into multiple public companies, and said that the company and CEO Mark Zuckerberg should be regulated more tight...

Chris Hughes co-founded Facebook with Mark Zukerberg, and describes Zuckerberg in warm terms as a friend, but in a long op-ed for the New York Times, Hughes calls for the breakup of Facebook and identifies Zuckerberg's shortsighted prioritization of "clicks" instead of "security and civility" for the platform's toxicity, blaming the company's unusual share structure (which gives Zuckerberg an absolute veto over all matters of company policy despite holding a minority of its shares) for a situat...
