About this initiative


The proposed Communication will take stock of social media platforms' voluntary actions taken so far, including flagging, fact-checking, actions to close fake accounts and deprive websites of "clickbait" advertising revenues channelled from the platforms. It will also assess the effectiveness of such measures and explore alternative approaches designed to address their shortcomings.
