Stop scrolling!: Youth activism and political remix on TikTok
In March of 2023, with the help of generous grants from the Stavros Niarchos Foundation and the Oscar M. Ruebhausen Fund at Yale Law School, we brought together eighty individuals approximately evenly split between research scholars and industry practitioners for two days of presentations and discussions. The scholars who joined us spanned many disciplines, while on the industry side we were joined by a variety of data scientists, product managers, policy managers, and UX researchers. As an organizing theme, we called this convening “Beyond Moderation” to acknowledge a growing recognition in the limitations of current moderation approaches and the possibility of imagining a future of alternative approaches to building a vital and healthy online community.
