UK politicians slam Facebook over illegal content

A U.K. Parliamentary committee has called foul on what it perceives to be a lack of action by social media companies to take down illegal content.

In a report released Monday, the Home Affairs Committee states social media firms must “be held accountable for removing extremist and terrorist propaganda hosted on their networks.” The report went on to state:

“Social media companies currently face almost no penalties for failing to remove illegal content or contents may refer to. We recommend that the Government consult on a system of escalating sanctions to include meaningful fines for social media companies…”
