Guest Speaker: Neil Potts, Public Policy Director, Trust & Safety Policy at Facebook
The dominant role of social media platforms in modern political discourse has brought to the forefront long-simmering disputes about the role that such platforms should play (if any) in the regulation and facilitation of our national dialogue. Join Neil Potts, Public Policy Director at Facebook, for an in-depth look at content moderation and enforcement within the largest social media platform in the world. Pott’s responsibilities include oversight of Facebook’s Trust and Safety Policy Team, which works on a variety of issues including counterterrorism, cybersecurity, civic integrity, and human rights; he previously led the development and implementation of Facebook’s Community Standards.
