Google’s Senior Vice President Kent Walker said the company would work with other web firms, including Facebook Microsoft and Twitter, to accelerate their efforts to tackle terrorism online. He said they would hire more experts and increase their use of technology to spot extremist and terrorism -related videos.
YouTube – one of the most popular video sharing websites – will also target potential Islamic State recruits and redirect them towards anti-terrorist videos to help change their minds about joining. Although the tech giant has taken a commendable taken, this action should not be limited to the Islamic State recruits. Any organisation or a person involved in spreading violence and extremist views should be closely monitored and all terrorism-related videos should be put down.
