Social Humans

Social Humans is a label system I created to address ethical issues in social media use by archives and academia. The legal constraints of social media platforms for data reuse have proven insufficient for expressing the intent and wishes of content creators or protecting vulnerable and marginalized communities in these spaces. These labels, as part of the larger Documenting the Now project, seek to address that gap.

SH Labels are for use by content creators, while SH-A labels are to be used by archivists and academics building social media collections.
