Social Media platforms to prevent violation of Code of Ethics during polls
21 March 2019 Current Affairs: Social Media platforms and internet mobile Association of India (IAMAI) have adopted a Voluntary Code of Ethics for the forthcoming general elections.
According to the code submitted to the election Committee, IAMAI and Social Media platforms, including Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter and Google, will create a high priority dedicated reporting mechanism and appoint dedicated teams during the polls for taking expeditious action on any reported violations.
No political campaign will be allowed to run on major social media platforms in the last 48 hours before polling ends.
It has also been agreed to provide a mechanism for political advertisers to submit pre-certified advertisements issued by the Media Certification and Monitoring Committee. 
The code also promises to facilitate transparency in paid political advertisements.
The social media companies will take action on content reported by the nodal officer, expeditiously, in accordance with the law.
IAMAI will act as the liaison between social media firms and the poll panel.
Our correspondent reports that the code, which comes into operation with immediate effect, has been developed to ensure free, fair and ethical use of social media platforms to maintain the integrity of the electoral process.
