The European Union has created a code of conduct to hold social media and technology companies to the following standards:
- Any posting that is reported as hate speech must be investigated within 24 hours of the report.
- Companies must have a clear policy and procedure on resolving complaints and be able to identify what hate speech is.
- Companies will be required to cooperate with other platforms, ensuring that all relevant information is shared.
- Companies will be asked to work with civil society organizations that will be active in flagging hateful content.
