I think information I will need to know from both sides are case studies/examples that support their side, but also examples that don’t. Can each side defend their stance even though there are exceptions and instances when real life examples don’t support their claim?
From the pro-regulation side, I would want to know how they think it fits in with the First Amendment. How would they defend their stance against people who don’t want more regulation, or who are adamant defenders of the First Amendment? I would also want to know what regulation would look like. Who would be in charge of regulating (people or an algorithm)? What are the consequences of someone who does not abide to the social media standards? What even are the standards for social media and who should set them? Should all social media platforms have more regulation or just certain ones?
From the anti-regulation side, I would want to also know how they think it fits in with the First Amendment. How would they defend their stance against people who have been affected from social media? Should there be less regulation or are they lobbying for social media regulation to stay the same? Does the group think that the regulation now in place is effective? Is there room for improvement?
