EU's new action plan against disinformation provides for strengthening surveillance of online platforms

Summary of Disinformation

EU’s new action plan against disinformation provides for strengthening surveillance of online platforms.

Disproof

The EU's action plan against disinformation does not impose surveillance on social media companies.

Instead the Commission will, with the help of the European Regulators Group for Audio-visual Media Services (ERGA), monitor the implementation of the commitments by the signatories of the Code of Practice and will regularly inform on whether and to what extent individual platforms are meeting these commitments.

Cooperation is purely voluntary.
