Should social media be regulated?

Published on February 13, 2020 by

It’s a long-running debate: how should we regulate the internet and social media?
While sites including facebook and twitter allow us to share information, they’ve also become places for illegal and harmful content to thrive.
The UK now wants those firms to be more responsible.
The government will appoint its Broadcast regulator Ofcom as an online watchdog, with powers to force companies to take down certain material.
Other countries such as Germany and Australia have brought in measures to control online content.

But is regulation the answer? And can it be done without violating personal freedoms?
