Borderline Speech: Caught in a Free Speech Limbo?

Borderline Speech: Caught in a Free Speech Limbo?

In ihrem Beitrag im Open Access Journal Internet Policy Review beschäftigt sich Amélie Heldt mit der Regulierung von Inhalten in sozialen Medien, die nicht ganz so einfach zu fassen sind. "Borderline Content" ist weder legal noch illegal und zeigt, wie problematisch Inhaltsregulierung mit Blick auf unsere Grundrechte sein kann.

In late September 2020, the Facebook algorithm removed a picture of onions because of the 'overtly sexual manner' they were positioned. While this anecdote will probably make you smile because of its absurdity (Facebook later confirmed the algorithm was supposed to block ‘nudity’), the underlying systematic sanctioning of content that might potentially breach community standards won’t. Social media platforms will remove or algorithmically downgrade content, or suspend or shadow-ban accounts because of borderline speech. How open can communication be if it is almost exceeding normative limits? And who gets to define these limits? This text aims at giving a few insights on borderline speech and why the concept behind it is highly problematic.
