Imagine: a popular blogger posts her latest entry on government corruption. Soon after her family receives threats and are forced from their home. Lives are changed forever. Scenarios like this are not only a reality for some users, they are all too common. But instances like this are helping to drive novel industry approaches to protecting the human rights of all users. Much is at stake if we fail to act. It’s how we choose to act next that will define us.
