Social media giants 'shamefully far' from tackling illegal content

Post by Thorin on Mon May 01, 2017 6:29 am

Social media firms are "shamefully far" from tackling illegal and dangerous content, says a parliamentary report.

Hate speech, terror recruitment videos and sexual images of children all took too long to be removed, said the Home Affairs Select Committee report.

It called for a review of UK laws and stronger enforcement around illegal material.

And the government should consider making the sites pay to help police what people post, it said. The cross-party committee took evidence from Facebook, Twitter and Google, the parent company of YouTube, for its report. It said they had made efforts to tackle abuse and extremism on their platforms, but "nowhere near enough is being done".
