Google started an entirely new initiative in its search service, businessinsider.com reported. From now on, its users trying to find extremism-related content in the Web, will be redirected to pages with anti-radical content.
By doing so, Google intends to contribute to the global cause of fighting terrorism and countering propaganda of extremism which has been strengthening its positions lately. Anthony House, the company’s Senior Manager of Public Policy and Communications, said that users of the Web should find positive and useful information, not the harmful one.
The initiative was supported by Facebook and Twitter. The companies’ management expressed hope that the anti-extremist project launched by Google will be of service in combating terrorism across the globe.
