PostSubject: It's Angela Merkel vs. Facebook as Germany heads into election year    Tue Jan 17, 2017 12:29 pm

While celebrating the 2013 election victory that gave her a third term as German chancellor, Angela Merkel reached over a colleague's shoulder and removed a German flag from his hand. A video of that small gesture, meant to declutter an image she knew would soon rocket around the globe, went viral on social media as purported evidence of Merkel's lack of patriotism - and is now spurring an effort to compel companies like Facebook to rein in hate speech and fake news.



As Ms Merkel campaigns for a fourth term, her government is raising the pressure on Facebook and other social networks to curb the spread of malicious posts. Her party said Saturday it's seeking legislation that would require Facebook and its peers to respond to complaints and delete such content within 24 hours or face fines. If passed, the proposal would be the stiffest regulation Facebook faces in any country where it operates.
