Facebook plans to combat terrorist propaganda with its own form of ‘counter speech’. According to a report by The Wall Street Journal, the social media network will attempt to discredit extremist content with posts, videos and images from its users, which counter the original propaganda. Facebook COO, Sheryl Sandberg also appeared to endorse the idea and pointed to a case wherein a page for a neo-Nazi group was bombarded with ‘likes’ and nice comments. She said that a similar ‘like’ attack could hurt groups like the Islamic State.
