01/06/12 - EMSOC workshop: Gewenste en ongewenste diversiteit in sociale media
On Friday the 1st of June, EMSOC organizes a lunch workshop: wanted and unwanted diversity in social media: from promoting user generated diversity to combat hate speech. This workshop takes place in Brussels.
During this workshop they want to approach diversity and pluralism in social media from two angles. On the one hand they will examine to what extent measures, used to ensure diversity in traditional media, can be transported to social media. But also to what extent new types of initiatives, e.g. the promotion of user generated content, can contribute to this. On the other hand, will be explained what possibilities there exist in order to combat undesired diversity, such as hate speech.
