Abstract: Social media as we know is a powerful tool for freedom of speech and expression, particularly for the voiceless. But this has unfortunately been increasingly used for illegal activities as well by all segments of society which includes individuals, corporations, and political leaders. The misuse of social media necessitates regulatory control and social media censorship but at the same time is of concern that it would result in violations of people's civil rights. In the majority of countries, the Government seems to have some authority over what kind of information a person would share and that’s when the censoring comes into play. Moreover, it is to be noted, there could be a criterion similar to the "media certification and monitoring committee" which is used to monitor election campaigns generally on social media but is not censorship. As the present Information Technology Act, 2002 in India is insufficient to meet our society's current trends and social media usage, there is a serious need to draft guidelines by enlisting the help of technical experts and civil society specialists including the Government to examine all the aspects of the use and misuse of social media and suggest a reasonable approach that does not jeopardize individuals' civil rights, especially their freedom of speech and expression as assured under Article 19(1)(a) of the Constitution of India. Hence, the authors of this research paper would undertake an in-depth analysis of the position of the existing Indian laws regulating social media and venture upon the adequacy and effectiveness of those legislations. This paper tries to investigate the net censorship rules of some key countries in conjunction with the advantages and disadvantages of such a limit with a focus on the scenario and need in India. Further, the authors would suggest a suitable legal framework or regulation for democratized social media.
Keywords: Social Media, Regulation, Censorship, IT Act, Article 19(1)(A).
