Safeguarding the 2024 Global Elections on Social Media

In this episode, Caitlin Chin-Rothmann and Julia Brock join Megan Shahi, director of technology policy at the Center for American Progress, to discuss how social media companies can prepare for the 2024 global election cycle. They examine how a range of platform policies—including local trusted flagger programs, language support, civic engagement strategies, and generative AI guardrails—can affect how voters view and understand information online. For in-depth recommendations on these topics, check out Megan’s recent report “Protecting Democracy Online in 2024 and Beyond.”
