Facebook has called for youngsters and other tech and social media giants to fight extremism and hate.
The firm's policy head Monika Bickert, spoke at SXSW on 11 March, at an event titled "Taking Back the Internet: Countering Extremism."
Bickert reportedly said that social media platforms like Facebook, need to adopt a more proactive approach to combating hate speech and extremism that goes beyond merely removing extremist content.
"Even if we were perfect at keeping violent extremism from ever hitting our community and other technology companies were perfect, we know that alone isn't enough to change minds or stop the spread of violent extremism," Bickert said at SXSW, the Guardian reported.
"The best remedy is good speech that gets people thinking and challenging ideologies.
We focus on trying to amplify some of the voices to counter violent narratives," the Facebook policy chief added.
