Social Media and the Problem of Hateful Content

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

A live stream of the in-process Christchurch, New Zealand, mosque shootings has put Facebook on the defensive about its practices. The footage remained on the site for 29 minutes, until it was reported and removed. In an age where anyone can broadcast to the world, technology companies are facing questions about how the content on their platforms should be regulated. The Agenda discusses the responsibilities of social media companies in situations like these.
