Improving Civic Discourse on Facebook

Samidh Chakrabarti, Katie Harbath, Katy Pearce, Liz Mair, Crystal Patterson (moderator)

Ever want to ask Facebook a few questions about how it thinks about civics, dialogue, and elections? This is a great opportunity to engage with members of the Facebook team and a few critics about the ways in which Facebook is trying to combat misinformation, hate speech, filter bubbles, and other challenges of digital discourse. The workshop is also an opportunity to brainstorm ways Facebook can begin to tackle this several billion person sized challenge.
