Social media giants failing to combat ‘blatant and easy to find’ anti-Muslim hate speech (Radio New Zealand)

Radio New Zealand: Social media giants failing to combat ‘blatant and easy to find’ anti-Muslim hate speech. “The Center for Countering Digital Hate (CCDH), an American non-profit organisation, says social media platforms collectively failed to act on 89 percent of posts containing anti-Muslim hatred and Islamophobia, even after they were reported to moderators. YouTube was the worst offender, ignoring 100 percent of anti-Muslim and Islamophobic posts. Twitter failed to act on 97 percent, Facebook ignored 94 percent, Instagram 86 percent and TikTok 64 percent. The CCDH flagged 530 posts, viewed at least 25 million times.”
