When is content on social media offensive enough to warrant content moderation?
While social media platforms impose limits on what can be posted, we know little about where users draw the line regarding offensive language and what measures they wish to see implemented when content crosses the boundary of what is deemed acceptable.
Conducting randomized experiments with over 5,000 participants we study how different types of offensive language causally affect users’ content moderation preferences

In an ever-changing digital landscape, we continue the age-old form of communication, written text. With the flexibility of digital interfaces, we explore how interface augmentations may enable everyday readers to personalize how they read. We will share two research projects showcasing how the Prolific platform enabled us to conduct research with inclusivity in mind.

The ability to run cognitive and behavioural assessments via the browser has opened doors for reproducibility in behavioural science. In particular, online methods reduce the need to fiercely match the hardware and experimental control implemented in the lab, as a study can be launched anywhere in the world, by any participant on any device. But is this enough? In this talk, Rebecca Hirst (Chief Science Officer at Open Science Tools, the creators of PsychoPy and Pavlovia) will discuss how Open Science can be facilitated in the world of online research.
