Revised blocking of Senate Bill 7072 social media platforms transparency provisions

On 23 May 2022, the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit ruled on the unconstitutionality of Senate Bill 7072 after the preliminary injunction by the District Court for the Northern District of Florida. The Court lifted the preliminary injunction on the provisions aimed to introduce transparency requirements for social media platforms. Particularly, the Court allowed the implementation of the platforms' obligations 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; provide to each user a counter showing the number of users that viewed the posted contents; and inform political candidates if the platform is providing free advertisement. For other provisions in the Bill concerning deplatforming, the injunction was confirmed by the Court of Appeals.
