This project identifies how misunderstandings of harm and safety flow into flawed data logics and ineffective automated digital platform responses. To date, platforms have presented the principal unit of harm as individual pieces of content or media objects.
Based on this assumption, platforms’ responses to harm have primarily focused on moderating discrete pieces of content.
