The Economist want's to know where you stand on Social Media Censorship:
Option 1:Authoritarian governments often shut down social networks. If democracies do the same, they can hardly preach to dictators.Rescue services increasingly rely on social networks for real-time information during emergencies. Any restrictions could cost lives.Nobody supports blanket censorship for books, films or the press any more. Social media are no different in principle from other media.
Option 2:Social media can be used to organise mass violence: instant messaging services fuelled the London riots.False rumours can spread like wildfire and sow panic. Tweets about gunmen attacking schools in Mexico allegedly led to 26 car crashes.Parents can choose to block adult websites on a child’s computer, but they can’t currently block pornography on a social network.
