Far-Right Extremism and Radicalization

While it has often been pointed out that YouTube's recommendation engine might push its viewers toward more extreme content, addressing major platforms' harms might not be enough. As described by Mozilla fellow Emmi Beevensee, when pushed off of major platforms such as Twitter and YouTube, hate speech finds new forums in decentralized spaces that are often not yet prepared to deal with it, but that still help these actors reach mass audiences. The resiliency of online communications is proving a hurdle for disrupting the organizing of far-right violence.
