(ANSA) – WASHINGTON, APRIL 29 – “We can learn a lot from what Europe is doing to improve social media. Their approach may not be exactly right for the United States, but it points a way forward”. The former American President Barack Obama wrote it on Twitter repeating an editorial in the New York Times on the new rules decided by the EU a few days ago to make social networks less toxic and fight ‘fake news’.

Recently, in a speech on disinformation at Stanford University, the former American president attacked Big Tech companies for not doing enough on controlling disinformation. “The new information ecosystem, fueled by the rise of social media platforms” is fueling some of humanity’s worst impulses, “Obama said, stressing that not” not all the problems we see every day are an inevitable consequence of new technologies.
