Important Poll – What’s the best way to reduce harms from social media content?

Share This:

An article in Stuff talking about “A controversial New Zealand code of conduct that has been billed as a “world first” attempt by social media firms to combat a wide range of online harms” contains a poll asking the question in the title of this article.

“The Aotearoa Code of Practice for Online Safety and Harms” is supposedly backed by most of the Social Media companies, Meta, Google, Twitter, TikTok and Amazon.

The code contains 45 measures in general terms that the companies can take to reduce various “online harms”. The companies can then choose which are relevant to their business. There are no penalties for non-compliance beyond potential suspension from the code.

Please vote on their poll and the one here.
