How do countries regulate social media? 14 September 20

South Korea is one of the countries in the world with the highest share of the population making use of social media, followed by Singapore, Australia, the US and - among emerging markets - Brazil.

What all these countries have in common is a highly developed mobile internet market combined with a considerable use of all types of over-the-top (OTT) services.

However, according to new Global Trends research by Cullen International, approaches to social media regulation vary considerably around the world. Growing use of social media and the spread of illegal and harmful content online is also triggering new debates on the role of safe harbours and whether certain safeguards protecting online platforms from liability and responsibility should be revised.
