Stop Hiding Hate
Big social media companies can't be trusted to regulate themselves. It's time for real transparency.
We Need Reports We Can Read
We know that social media is used to spread hate speech, racism, and misinformation. And that social media platforms haven't taken needed steps to manage this harmful content. They haven't even provided clear reports on their policies and enforcement.
Government mandates and oversight are necessary. This is why ADL supports California's social media transparency bill, AB 587.
Platform "transparency reports" fail to provide meaningful information about hateful content and how it is addressed. These reports are confusing, uninformative, and evasive. Currently big social media companies have few legal or financial incentives to improve. See how this California bill provides the structure and requirements that will help make Reports We Can Read a reality.
