    An online platform can be many things. It can be a social media site, a search engine, or an internet service interface. As we have seen with issues like the amplification of hate speech through Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites as well as the results that search engine algorithms provide us, platforms can have enormous influence over what we have access to online and how we are influenced by what the platform exposes to us. Thus, how we choose to define and regulate a platform can have vast repercussions on many aspects of our public and private lives and shape our beliefs and daily routines. This panel discusses several of these related issues.
    The Section held a virtual business meeting prior to the Annual Meeting.
