Att hantera desinformation på sociala medier : En normativ studie utifrån den deliberativa demokratiteorin

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Linnéuniversitetet/Institutionen för statsvetenskap (ST)

Sammanfattning: The dissemination of disinformation is unwanted, but on the rise in Sweden, often via social media. Since the deliberative democratic ideal stresses the importance of good democratic dialogues, this study therefore aims at giving an answer to the question of how this theory claims disinformation in the comment section on social media should be handled. Via a normative given-that analysis the question is analysed from a normative perspective, based on what is required for a conversation to be deliberative, and problematized from a practical perspective. The analysis shows that disinformation disturbs the conversation, and thereby normatively should be erased. Meanwhile, the problematization shows that practically deleting a comment could go against the ideal, since only comments which are intended to misinform should be deleted, and the question of whether such an intent exists can be hard to determine. To solve the feasibility problem and thereby give the research question a clear answer, a theory development of the deliberative theory is being made. The essay concludes that following the new way of seeing the deliberative ideal, the comments which are suspected to contain disinformation should be left in the comment section, but ideally thoroughly via a deliberative conversation be questioned.
