The coronavirus is a fast-spreading global crisis. Misinformation and rumors about the pandemic are a serious problem that could affect response efforts around the world. What are Facebook and other social media platforms doing to combat this and how can we be informed citizens of the internet?
Join us Wednesday at 4 p.m. Eastern for an online conversation about how platforms are confronting viral disinformation in the wake of the coronavirus. We’ll hear from two legal experts and Facebook’s head of security on the efforts to address misinformation about the pandemic, and whether these efforts might alter how users, the platforms themselves, and society think about online free speech.
RSVP on the New America website to receive a reminder, or access the conversation here.
