    Editor's Edition: The post-Trump era of social media

    Former president Donald Trump was banned from many social media platforms following the riots on Capitol Hill in the weeks leading up to the inauguration ceremony of President Joe Biden.Ramona Pringle, a technology expert and associate professor at Ryerson University, says it took too long for companies to ban Trump and others because there have been "too many real-world repercussions that come from online chatter" and those instances should have given reason for companies to take action. She says that while social media companies say they don't want to be "the arbiter of truth," at a certain point they need to take action and perhaps it's time for a change in the model of social media. Pringle says a distributed model, where users are in charge of the content and platform instead of management by one person and an executive team, could be the next era of social media.She adds that we will likely see more social media platforms emerge, as users take time to understand and adopt new ways to connect with others.
