The Government v Social Media

Algorithms, child abuse, domestic violence, scams, extremist material, mis and disinformation, and the availability of good journalism on social media – these are all areas identified by the government for investigation as part of a new parliamentary committee investigating the influence and impacts of social media on Australian society.

In today’s podcast, we’re going to look at what the committee has been asked to achieve, where this has all come from, and why it matters to you.
