UK to create regulator for social media firms

UK government launches a regulator on social media giants to do more investigation on their platforms. The country’s media regulator known as ‘Ofcom’ will observe the content of social media platforms and it will penalize the social media companies if there is offensive content on their platforms.

Last year the government suggested that the regulator will issue fines, block access of the users and make them legally responsible for sharing offensive content on social media platforms.

Nicky Morgan, secretary of the department said, “The regulators will have the ability to fight against offensive content on the social media but with the protections and transparency that users deserve”.
