The real cause of hate speech on social media

The real cause of hate speech on social media

In most cases, browsing social media will tell you that the vast majority of people are not really ready for any form of civic debate; the emergence of social media seems to have deepened cultural and ideological differences. In addition, this is limited, largely due to human misbehavior on the Internet, which is indeed a good reason why this happens frequently.

However, it is important to note that there may be another reason why online discourse is so hostile and prejudiced, which may be related to the usual design of social media platforms. As part of the interview, approximately 257 social media users were surveyed. They believe these users have characteristics that support or limit their online reasoning ability.

Search should be treated with caution, because the researchers are funded by Facebook, and the results are still very interesting because they are often related to social media design rather than being taken seriously before. The result of the three main platforms, namely Facebook, WhatsApp, and YouTube.

Using social media and spreading discussions on Facebook, the respondents who participated in the platform discussion felt that they were very self-conscious, because their storylines were watched in their entirety, and there were audiences of their friends and acquaintances on Facebook, and they felt that they The content is restricted and what can be said in the end.

In addition, it has been found that the way of selecting and summarizing comments in the initial view is somewhat problematic because it prevents people who start the discussion from getting as much information about the topic being discussed. This is the experience of someone with similar behavior on WhatsApp.Unlike Facebook, WhatsApp is just a private messaging service, which means that people who want to argue can talk about their true beliefs without feeling that many people value them.

In the past, this was the highest percentage of all social networks where respondents received questions. However, on YouTube, only about 6% of respondents said they participated in discussions on the video streaming platform.

Although YouTube’s comment moderation policy is a bit vague, in most cases, a large number of comments means that users are free to express their opinions, and the likelihood that someone will see their comment (let alone start a comment) is quite low. This shows that the design of social media platforms has a huge impact on people’s freedom of expression.
