Facebook claims just 200 viewers livestreamed the New Zealand mosque shooting

Christchurch mosques shootings: New Zealand companies decide to pull ads from Facebook and Google

In the week since 50 people died in the New Zealand mosque terror attacks that was live streamed by the attacker, social media giants like Facebook and YouTube have faced global criticism for regulations on content that are not strict enough, and a slow response to their platforms being used by perpetrators of violence.

State-owned Lotto NZ said it had already pulled advertising from social media "as the tone didn't feel right in the aftermath of these events".

The video was viewed fewer than 200 times during the live broadcast and no users reported the video during the live broadcast.

Tarrant is accused of livestreaming the attack, which saw the massacre of 50 people in two Christchurch mosques, via Facebook. But though it was deleted by Facebook within minutes, copies quickly spread, reports USA Today.

Facebook has released new figures relating to the views and shares of live-streamed footage captured during the recent attacks against New Zealand mosques.

Facebook uses artificial intelligence to detect objectionable material, while relying on the public to flag content that violates its standards.

"No users reported the video during the live broadcast", he added.

You're also told to contact law enforcement in your area if someone is in immediate danger.

The company's live stream function has come under scrutiny from advertisers, internet service providers, and the prime minister, for what they perceive as the company taking too long to remove the videos, and even making the live stream function available to all of its users in the first place. "The events in Christchurch raise the question, if the site owners can target consumers with advertising in microseconds, why can't the same technology be applied to prevent this kind of content being streamed live?" the Association of New Zealand Advertisers and the Commercial Communications Council said in a joint statement.

"The volume of related videos uploaded to YouTube in the 24 hours after the attack was unprecedented both in scale and speed, at times as fast as a new upload every second", they said. A gunman livestreamed the incident on Facebook using a head-mounted camera, and while the social network removed the video and the person's account, the 17-minute clip was still shared online.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has spoken to Facebook chief operating officer Sheryl Sandberg since the attack.

'It is horrendous and while they've given us those assurances, ultimately the responsibility does sit with them'.

"Some variants such as screen recordings were more hard to detect, so we expanded to additional detection systems including the use of audio technology", the company said.

However, it's less clear how these systems apply to Facebook's live streaming.

8chan is a dark corner of the web where those disaffected by mainstream social media sites often post extremist, racist and violent views.

"We remain shocked and saddened by this tragedy and are committed to working with leaders in New Zealand, other governments, and across the technology industry to help counter hate speech and the threat of terrorism". Digital hashing breaks down a video and stores it on a database, so that it can be employed to prevent visually similar videos from appearing.
