Can we have useful conversations on the Internet?

You probably know the worst things better: trolling, disinformation, fights that quickly become political and out of control. But online conversations can also be polite and informative.

There is a Facebook Vaccine Talk group that uses a combination of rules and active moderation to create a culture of fact-based communication. There are forums on Reddit that bring up sensitive topics while avoiding insults. And Twitter recently launched a new product to support healthy communication called Communities.

What can we learn from places where fruitful conversations take place? What are these groups doing that works so well?

In this virtual Times event, Shira Ovide, who writes the subscriber-only On Tech newsletter, explores the forces behind the healthiest communities on the Internet and learns lessons about what makes them work. She will speak with a senior executive from one of the main community platforms, as well as former Drag Race member RuPaul, about how they manage conversations in their often naughty communities.

Ahead of the event, we invite you to join our very own healthy group communication experiment.

This discussion is part of The Times’ subscriber-only series of virtual events.
