NZ gunman live-streamed attacks on Facebook – Channel 4 News


15 Mar 2019

Are social media firms doing enough to tackle extremism and stop the live-streaming of violence?

One of the most shocking things about the Christchurch shootings is that the gunman apparently live-streamed his deadly attack for 17 minutes before the video stream was taken down.
Facebook say they removed the video and the associated Facebook and Instagram accounts “quickly”, but not before clips were shared and uploaded on numerous other platforms. So are social media firms doing enough to tackle extremism and stop the live-streaming of violence?
