Should People Be Able to Sue Social Platforms Over Content Posted by Other Users?

A new survey from Pew Research Center probes one of the biggest issues in the debate on Section 230


Should people have the right to sue social media platforms for content posted by other users? A majority of the 4,623 U.S. adults who responded to a recent survey by think tank Pew Research Center believe the answer is no.

Pew said 56% of respondents feel that people should not be able to sue social networks for content posted by others, while 41% believe they should have that right.

Not surprisingly, those who identified themselves as social media users were more likely to oppose the right to sue than those who do not use social media, at 59% and 47%, respectively.
