Content Moderation: Beyond Take-Down/Leave-Up

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Between a global pandemic, the US Presidential election, and a growing racial justice movement, communication online has never been more important. Therefore, it is not surprising that the tech industry's content moderation practices have come under intense scrutiny globally from users and lawmakers. In response, companies have tried to explain the nuanced policies underpinning what stays up and what comes down. The difficulty of moderating content at scale is not lost on our panelists who will explore how different companies are exploring new approaches to what can seem like a binary decision. Panelists from Twitter, Patreon, the Facebook Oversight Board, and Techdirt will discuss how companies should be communicating these decisions and the future of content moderation.
