UK to fine social media companies for harmful content

The U.K.'s Office of Communications (Ofcom) will be empowered to levy fines against social media companies that do not take steps to remove harmful content from their platforms.

An announcement Wednesday from the Digital and Home Secretaries stated that Ofcom will be granted the power to "hold companies to account if they do not tackle internet harms such as child sexual exploitation and abuse and terrorism."
