Social media has been used as a tool to spread propaganda and spread misinformation, but the latest example of its power could be taking the shape of a social media check.
The social media site Rockstar Social has announced it will be using social media to monitor users to identify those who are spreading “misinformation, hate speech and extremism”.
The announcement was made by Rockstar CEO Dan Reed on Twitter.
The Rockstar platform has been working on social reporting tools for a while, but Reed is the first to admit that social media has allowed social media platforms to be used for the purposes of misinformation and hate speech.
“It’s really important that we not just take the good parts of social media for granted.
That is why I want to say that we’re not only going to be using the social media tools, but also the platforms that have been around for years and years to ensure that we take the best parts of the social platforms and combine them with the tools that we already have to combat these types of messages and to combat extremism,” Reed said.
Reed said that Rockstar would be testing the tools with a small number of users, with a wider testing phase planned for the end of the year.
He added that RockStar would not be creating “fake news”, but rather making sure the information on its platform is accurate and not false.
“We’re really going to do that by verifying the information, by monitoring the content and then making sure that we make sure that our users are aware of what they’re doing,” Reed told the BBC.
Ree also said that the platform would “actively monitor” social media posts to identify and combat “hate speech”.
“We’ve seen a lot of things that we feel are fake news and fake news sites, that we know are fake, and so we’re going to actively monitor those sites to make those kinds of content go away,” he said.
Rockstar has previously worked on other platforms including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
