Social media sites, conversely, maintain that they are not censoring conservative users. The platforms state that they are tolerant of different views, yet wish to ensure that the platforms are agreeable and safe for everyone.

Calls to Crack Down on Hate Speech

Various groups and individuals have noted the existence of cyberbullying and hate speech on various social networking sites. This has, therefore, engendered pressure on these platforms to crack down on hate speech.

However, others have questioned who determines what is hate speech. There are also concerns that people could arguably label any speech they disagree with as hate speech. In certain scenarios, this could open the door to censorship yet again.
