Should social media be censored?

In February last year The Economist launched an ad campaign in London Underground stations asking travelers where they stand on the issue of social media censorship. The Economist’s ‘Where do you stand?’ brand campaign was originally launched in 2010 to drive debate and discussion on key issues covered in the weekly magazine. This time it included a double-pronged approach to inspire heated debate around the question: Should social media be censored?

  1. I think that is a really good question. During the research for this assignment, I was surfing facebook, and I found the most horrible stuff – soldiers standing on a small and very skinny child. A girl stepping on a kitten with her high heels – and a lot of hateful wall posts. That definately should be censored I think. It just leaves the question – who is to decide, when pictures and posts are inappropriate? as for now, facebook does it – but are they the right agent/system for this?They are obviously not doing it good enough!

  2. I am trying to comment, but for some odd reason, it doesn’t work. Som censoring makes sense: During my research of the many corners of Facebook I found some horrible stuff. That definately should have been censored. But who should draw the lines and decide for the limits?
