Regulating online harms (House of Commons Library, UK)

“Harmful online content and activity can include cyberbullying, racism, misogynistic abuse, pornography, and material promoting violence and selfharm. Social media platforms have been used to spread anti-vaccine disinformation during the Covid-19 pandemic. Critics, including parliamentary committees, academics, and children’s charities, have argued that self-regulation by internet companies is not enough to keep users safe and that statutory regulation should be introduced.”
