Blocked Senate Bill 7072 introducing social media platforms transparency measures

On 30 June 2021, the Court for the Northern District of Florida Tallahassee Division blocked Senate Bill 7072. The Court ordered a preliminary injunction of the Bill, arguing that the act represents an attempt to control social-media platforms classified as “ too liberal” and emphasized that the mediation of ideas expressed by private speakers on online platforms doesn't represent a legal and legitimate governmental interest. The Bill aims to introduce transparency requirements for social media platforms. Particularly, such platforms are obliged to disclose the standards that they use for determining how to censor, deplatform, and shadow ban content or users, notify users of any change to such standards and provide to each user a counter showing the number of users that viewed the posted contents. Moreover, platforms providing free advertising for a candidate must inform the candidate of such contribution.
