European partners are implementing a 24 month project SafeNet: Monitoring and Reporting for Safer Online Environments.
Joining 21 partners and coordinated by INACH (International Network against Cyber Hate), the project focuses on continuous monitoring and reporting hate speech content to the IT companies and responsible authorities and awareness raising by regular advocacy towards the social media companies, providing consolidated and interpreted data to national authorities as well as running national bi-monthly information campaigns involving different stakeholders, including IT companies, public authorities, civil society organisations and media.
Today we present the first fact sheets, presenting data and drawing conclusions on our monitoring efforts in January-March, 2022. The data we collected and analysed indicates that the platform response seems to vary across the platforms and countries, with some platforms reacting only once the trusted partner status is invoked.
