Event description

Description

Social media has become an integral part of our business and personal lives. In the wake of the Facebook-Cambridge Analytica revelations, social media platforms are facing increasing scrutiny on a number of fronts over user data policies and practices. Investigations by the Federal Trade Commission and state attorneys general and recent Congressional hearings have heightened calls for regulation. The pervasive nature of social media use and the lack of comprehensive privacy laws to date underscore the challenge of rolling out meaningful, practical regulations. Kathy Ossian of Ossian Law P.C. will cover:

  • Examples of use and sharing of data to disseminate false information and influence elections

  • Effectiveness of platform self-regulation of content, including hate speech and “fake news”

  • Impact of changes in data sharing practices on users, developers, advertisers and customers

  • Potential regulation models

Networking from 5:30 to 6:00 with the presentation beginning promptly at 6:00. Complimentary admission includes heavy hors d'oeuvres. Register today!
