Social media has the power to influence major geopolitical and economic events like presidential elections, civil protests, and even genocide, but with great power comes great responsibility, and social platforms are not doing enough to hold themselves accountable for wrongdoing that occurs when anonymous users post “fake news” or intentionally spread misinformation to manipulate public opinion.
While social media has traditionally been valued as a place where online identities can be protected through anonymization (or pseudonymization), it’s clear that with their weak oversight of content and low standards for verifying users and advertisers, social media platforms are in the midst of a serious identity crisis.
Imagine a world where everyone has confidence and peace of mind in their social media interactions. In this webinar, we’ll discuss how this can be made possible with adequate remote identity verification that corroborates a social media user’s information with an actual person.
We’ll make the compelling argument that social media platforms must add identity verification at the onset of user account registration, and business verification at the onset of advertiser onboarding workflows, in order to effectively curtail fake accounts and drastically reduce both spam and the spread of inaccurate information.
