Setting Safeguards for Social Media: How to Stay Safe When Living Online: None of us are strangers to graphic content. Today, almost anyone can upload and disseminate newsworthy information online. Yet this often leaves viewers exposed to posts that capture some of the worst things human beings can do to each other. This exposure can take a psychological toll, whether the content is viewed in a professional capacity (for example, by human rights investigators, investigative reporters, or content moderators) or a personal one. During this conversation, two pioneers of online investigation–Daragh Murray and Alexa Koenig–will draw from the latest social science research, original interviews, and their experiences running university-based investigation labs, to explore the safeguards people can put in place to mitigate the risks and maximize the benefits of time spent online. This event will take place in-person at Queen Mary University of London School of Law on 9 May 2024 from 5-7pm. To register, click here.
