Social media inquiry seeks to ensure ‘Australians are safe online’

Liberal MP Lucy Wicks says the Morrison government's social media inquiry seeks to ensure the right policy settings are in place to “keep Australians safe online”. 

The inquiry comes after Facebook whistleblower, Frances Haugen, claimed the company puts profit before the safety of its users. 

“I think we need to do all we can to ensure young Australians, in fact, all Australians are kept safe online and are not harmed when using platforms like social media,” Ms Wicks told Sky News host Sharri Markson. 

“It’s such an important, critical part of how we communicate these days, and yet unfortunately almost everybody has a story or knows somebody with a story about how they’ve experienced online bullying, intimidation, toxic abuse. 

“This is not ok, particularly in 2021.”
