Synopsis

Mihaela Ulieru / Shawn Jensen / Ankit Bhatia / Micha Benoliel / Sergio Mello / Monty Munford

In this session, learn about the yet unsolved (and some even unarticulated) problems plaguing centralized social media. Some of these have become conundrums almost impossible to untangle, given the power of social media organizations. Among them: fake news, radicalization and conspiracies, data privacy and piracy, de-platforming of contrarian voices, and stifling of free speech.
