Social media giants meet at UN to address online terrorism

Listen /

 

The UN Security Council has called for dialogue with major social media companies in order to limit terrorists' ability to recruit and operate online.

To that end, last month saw the launch of the Tech Against Terrorism's Knowledge Sharing Platform, at UN Headquarters in New York, involving some major players in the field, including Google, Facebook, and the NGO ICT4Peace.

The support of big information technology companies will enable medium and small-scale companies –  especially start-ups – to also join the fight against terrorism going forward.
