Why Freedom of speech does not apply on social media?

Why is there no freedom of expression on social media?

Because it’s a private platform and has its own rules written by whoever owns the domain and platform. Social media is private property! Social media platforms are not a public square. They aren’t public property, owned and operated by government.

Freedom of speech does not apply to social media because social media is owned and operated by private businesses. The proprietor of a social media platform has the legal right to determine what can and cannot be said on the platform.

Free Speech and Social Media: What Are Your Rights?
Many people are complaining about being kicked off social media platforms, either because of particular posts or because of a series of posts. Professor of law at New York School, Nadine Strossen, explains why you can’t apply your freedom of speech on Facebook, Twitter etc…

Is it fair that major social platforms shut down or ban the profiles of those who make misinformation? Is it necessary and justified in order to protect citizens?

This is a very sensitive issue. In principle, I say it is better to avoid censorship. But when a person harms society by spreading false and baseless information, something should be done. At the very least, it should be reported and punished if the action is done with obvious negative intentions.

But Who decides if an information is false and harmful?

I cannot suggest a perfect solution, but a simple idea to develop. In my opinion, it is important to initiate a public investigation to verify the origins of the phenomenon. Investigate also the intentions of who did it. Perhaps the fact of being investigated and prosecuted could be a deterrent and set an example to commit such actions.

Is it better to have a personal website?

Getting a personal site is better because you can publish whatever you want, within the limits of legality, without having to submit to the rules or share intimate information with a private company.
In fact, Socially Owned Platforms could be the future social network.

What are Socially Owned Social Platforms, and How Will They Solve the Problems of Social Networks?

As you can understand from the title, it aims to explain what are decentralized social networks.

ChatGPT and Future: How AI technology will disrupt industries and take our jobs

Yet, from what you can see, it’s inaccurate and people already started to trust blindly. Yes for innovation. But I hope that we’ll not become as monkeys that rely all on their AI assistants. Then it’ll not be a positive evolution.

Michio Kaku, one of the greatest scientists in our century, is optimistic, and He’s point of view is a bit realistic. Maybe, It’ll not be exactly as he imagines, but he’s approach is good.

This is not a Blog, this is a Digital Garden!

Surfing the web I found a new amazing philosophy in our digital era! The blogger movement of Digital Gardeners. I read a lot about and a like it. So I continued to read and to learn. On this philosophy I decided to build this blog and hope It’ll be a good one.

What is a Digital Garden?

It is a blog, sure, but it is also a wiki. It’s a spot where I can post ideas, snippets, resources, thoughts, collections, and other bits and pieces that I find interesting and useful.

Why I choose a Digital Garden?

Chronologically sorted pages of posts aren’t how people actually use the internet.

(My blog is a digital garden, not a blog – Joel Hooks)

Internet is a network! So we use it as it has to be. We search and follow pieces of information by links and connections. This is the reason we use search engines every single time we need something. Because We can’t find an index list like books.

Then, if it’s not about a personal journal or a narrative story, it is a smart way for authors and readers to navigate between blog contents. It’s not easy of course the first time, because everyone has his personal style.

Philosophy of Digital Garden

Just like plants in the garden I’ve got posts that are in various stages of growth and nurturing. Some might wither and die, and others (like this one you are reading) will flourish and provide a source of continued for the gardener and folks in community that visit.

J. Hook writes also that curation comes before a chronological list.

They’re inherently exploratory – notes are linked through contextual associations. They aren’t refined or complete – notes are published as half-finished thoughts that will grow and evolve over time. They’re less rigid, less performative, and less perfect than the personal websites we’re used to seeing.
