Facebook Outages: What Happened, Why it Happened, and Why it Matters

12:15PM - 01:15PM Online via Zoom
 Professors Carroll and DeNardis will discuss what is currently known about the causes of the Facebook outages. The discussion will explain how Facebook and other Internet platforms rely on a technological architecture that has enabled the rapid growth of the Internet but that also has a number of security risks and other pitfalls that Internet users should understand. The discussion will also touch on whether this episode reveals a need for greater regulation at the technical level of how Internet platforms operate, leaving for another day discussion of regulating the content on these platforms.
