Several major technology companies announced measures Thursday to combat violent extremism and hate on social media.
The White House’s United We Stand Summit was meant to “counter the destructive effects of hate-fueled violence on our democracy and public safety,” its website said. The website detailed prominent tech companies’ newly-announced anti-violent extremism initiatives.
Meta, Facebook and Instagram’s parent company, revealed a new partnership with the Middlebury Institute of International Studies Center on Terrorism, Extremism, and Counterterrorism focused on fighting violent extremism. The summit website said Meta will work with Search For Common Ground to provide initiatives to help community-based partners trying to counter hate-fueled violence.
