Extremist Groups Now Prefer Google Plus To Spread Violent Content
With social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook coming down deeply on users sharing violent material, extremist groups seems to be shifting to Google Plus to popularize their agenda, reported the media. As per a report in The Independent last week, Google recognized the problem by claiming that it had “more to act” so as to correctly deal with it and had put devoted teams in position to act.
“We have understandable rules in opposition to violent material as well as content from recognized terrorist organizations. And when we discover violations, we take quick measures,” a spokesperson of Google claimed to the media in an interview. Google claimed that it was pledged to keeping hate speech and violent material off their website, comprising Google+, and a devoted team was placed in position to do act out.
Previously this week, The Hill claimed that neo-Nazi and White nationalist trolls have discovered a home on Google Plus. Various Google Plus societies are explicitly posting explicitly anti-Semitic and racist material, the report claimed. The Independent discovered homophobic comments and images stirring violence on social media website of Google.
Speaking of Google, JD.com (leading e-commerce firm of China) recently declared that it has locked an investment worth USD 550 Million from Google as fraction of a new tactical joint venture among the two leading technological firms. Google, which still stays unreachable in China owing to a certified ban, will get almost 27.1 Million newly-introduced “Class A” ordinary shares of JD.com at an introductory cost of USD 20.29 for each share, the firms claimed.
The 2 firms will together explore retail business in areas all over the world, comprising the United States, Southeast Asia, and Europe, as per an interview by JD. The joint venture will combine the benefits of JD.com in logistics & supply chain and Google’s tech strengths, it claimed.
