Narrowing gap between online and offline activity as tech platforms “normalise” hate

ISD’s Chloe Colliver speaks with the Mirror about how hateful posts and extremist content may be a mirror of the offline world, while also serving as a trigger within online communities leading into the real world.

“When tech companies target and amplify hateful and extremist content, it can make those views seem normal and popular. And tech platforms make harmful content more accessible to people already engaging in hate and extremism, as well as exposing new audiences to this kind of content,” Colliver said to the outlet.
