A podcast episode from KQED (California) on reimagining the future of digital public spaces features Sarita Schoenebeck, who shares some ways in which content moderation on social media platforms can become more effective through the use of shared community values and human rights.

"It's important to remember social media is not a blank slate any more than any community offline is," Schoenebeck says. "We can look at our local schools, for example, and they all have policies and values that shape people’s experiences.
