This issue of the Journal of Online Trust and Safety, which serves as the Conference Proceedings for the 2023 Trust and Safety Research Conference, consists of a diverse set of research contributions. These include: a paper drawing on interviews in the Philippines, Brazil, India, Egypt, and Nigeria to assess the awareness and utilization of online privacy and security features; research analyzing forums that host nonconsensual deepfake pornography; a study comparing a crowdsourced fact-checking community and two professional fact-checking sites in Taiwan; and a paper introducing methods for identifying online search directives. This issue also features a research note that underscores the risks of African governments collecting personal digital data, along with five commentaries. The commentaries include: an analysis of the evolution of Twitter’s (now X’s) Community Notes feature; a discussion highlighting the incentives that underlie the suboptimal performance of large language models in specific languages; an exploration of challenges involved in compiling a trust and safety glossary; a discussion of how societal values could be embedded into algorithms; and an overview of the latest research findings concerning social contagion related to suicide and eating disorder. The Journal of Online Trust and Safety is grateful to the Omidyar Network for their generous support.
