Facebook working to remove extremism online

Facebook is vowing to remove terrorist content from it’s platform. The site has emphasized that it will alert authorities about a suspicious post in order to prevent a potential attack.

The social media site says it is working aggressively to take down terror-related content.

The goal is to deny terrorists a tool for planning attacks.

Facebook has also faced criticism for a string of violent attacks that have been broadcast on the site.

Facebook’s Director of Policy, Simon Milner released a statement saying in part, “we want Facebook to be a hostile environment for terrorists.”

CEO Mark Zuckerberg has said he will be adding 3,000 employees to remove harmful content from Facebook.
