The secret rules of the internet...
Masha Yudin stashed this in Media
For some reason I have not thought about those issues:
"Today, YouTube’s billion-plus users upload 400 hours of video every minute. Every hour, Instagram users generate 146 million "likes" and Twitter users send 21 million tweets. Last August, Mark Zuckerbergposted on Facebook that the site had passed "an important milestone: For the first time ever, one billion people used Facebook in a single day."
The moderators of these platforms — perched uneasily at the intersection of corporate profits, social responsibility, and human rights — have a powerful impact on free speech, government dissent, the shaping of social norms, user safety, and the meaning of privacy. What flagged content should be removed? Who decides what stays and why? What constitutes newsworthiness? Threat? Harm? When should law enforcement be involved?"
And there are no perfect answers to such questions.
