Facebook, media should not be responsible for member content
Today’s Los Angeles Times editorial raises the fact that the site should not have to pre-screen every poll or quiz or post the millions of members create. This issue is also raised with online newspaper articles with an option to comment. Pre-approval of the comments would take time and possibly chill potential debate. Yet, there are definitely some comments, polls etc. that are not useful to debate and add nothing to a conversation about an issue. The community should take it upon itself to report those instances so that an organization can take the steps to remove it.
