From algorithms and AI to content moderation and data privacy — the policies and practices of the major social media platforms have enormous impacts on us all. GLAAD’s inaugural Social Media Safety Index (SMSI) report findings indicate that Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and TikTok are effectively unsafe for LGBTQ users across all of these categories. How can these companies be held accountable and what are some of the recommendations and solutions being put forth by leaders in the field? Join SMSI program director Jenni Olson to learn about GLAAD's ongoing advocacy work and engage in discussion about the roadmap forward, including how we can all be a part of creating safer spaces for LGBTQ people online.
