The government and other organizations like the FCC are coming together to crack down on social media. This pressure is coming from complaints of how data is stored, and shared, as well as the spread of fake news, and other harmful publication practices. Discuss with the interviewer what you know about the regulation of social media platforms, and how you feel these regulations will affect your role as a journalist.
"I believe that it's important to have social media regulations that hold people accountable for what they publish. I recently read an article on how much repeat content we see in a day, and how much of that is fake news or a hoax. I think it's important to regulate without censoring those that are working hard to spread legitimate information and thoughts."
"I believe the regulation of social media is a responsible step to ensuring that the information people consume in the media is legitimate and true. It is so easy these days for anyone to publish work that could be harmful or simply untrue. Having standards is an essential factor when it comes to social media."
