Engadget: Tech giants team with Anti-Defamation League to fight online hate

Engadget: Tech giants team with Anti-Defamation League to fight online hate. “Internet giants like Facebook and Google have had to step up their fights against hate speech in recent months, but they only occasionally present a united front against bigotry. That might change after today, though. Facebook, Google, Microsoft and Twitter are partnering with the Anti-Defamation League on a Cyberhate Problem-Solving Lab that aims to stem the tide of online hate. The ADL will offer policy considerations and an understanding of how internet hate develops, while the companies will focus on ‘technical solutions’ that keep hateful behavior at bay.”
