Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to eradicate anonymous online hate speech and fake news
It's all part of making a better world.
It looks like a world where people can post about their lives, businesses and visions on social media sites without fear of fake news and targeted hate speech.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by minority communities
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Hate Speech is removed from posts within minutes
There is an option to flag fake news
Ability to back up posting with evidence
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
Currently there is a large circulation of fake news which emboldens racism, antisemitism, homophobia , transphobia and hate for people with disabilities. Should my vision be successful, it will mean that it will be easier to flag posts that are fake news and targeted towards hatred or spreading malicious content meaning that people from minority communities can share their true selves without fear hate.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
