Senator Thune calls for social reform on the US Senate floor

WASHINGTON, D.C.(KMIT)- South Dakota Senator John Thune called for social media reform during a speech on the Senate floor last week.  He says algorithms have changed the information social media users see.

He says algorithms can be useful if properly utilized.

But algorithms, he says, have become more problematic than positive.

Thune, who is a ranking member of the Subcommittee on Communications, Media, and Broadband, says he is working on two bills which would help increase online transparency and accountability for consumers of all ages.
