STUDY: Social media making polarization worse…

A new report rec­om­mends that the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment pri­or­i­tize plans to enact stronger trans­paren­cy require­ments and oth­er mea­sures for tech plat­forms in an effort to com­bat polar­iza­tion on social media.

The report released Mon­day by the NYU Stern Cen­ter for Busi­ness and Human Rights argues that tech plat­forms have failed to “self-reg­u­late suf­fi­cient­ly” and calls for gov­ern­ment intervention.

The authors cite the Jan. 6 riot at the U.S. Capi­tol as an exam­ple of social media con­tribut­ing to polit­i­cal polar­iza­tion in a way that man­i­fests in real-world harm.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

Big Tech is at war with you! They don't want you to see the truth.

DONT LET THEM WIN THE WAR!
