I was asked on to talk about Facebook’s new Voter Information Center and where the line should be drawn on dangerous content.
In the video I make clear how important the two different userbases of the platform are to how Twitter and Facebook operate. Twitter is left wing and younger, while Facebook is more right wing and older, this inevitably leads to differences in how to police their audiences.
I also welcome the Voter Information Centre, Facebook as a platform has worked hard to increase voter turnout, a fact that is often ignored by much of the media. Facebook is a platform with many pitfalls and capabilities, but at its heart it can still engender democratic good.
