A report into antisemitism on social media, prepared by Dr Andre Oboler and the Online Hate Prevention Institute, builds on work released at the Global Forum Conference on Antisemitism last year.
It looks at how different categories of antisemitism are spread between the major social media companies. It also looks at the rates at which such content is removed by each platform.
Some highlights of the report are:
• After 10 months, only 80% of the 2000+ items of antisemitism in the sample were removed
• Only 4% of New Antisemitism on YouTube is removed
• Traditional antisemitism is the most common form of online antisemitism, New Antisemitism (related to Israel) is the second most common.
• Overall there is great variance both within each platform and between the platforms.
• There is much room for improvements to the way social media companies respond to users reports of online antisemitism
