[$$] The Internet and Evil

Footage of last week’s massacre in New Zealand, which the shooter streamed in real time via Facebook Live, quickly proliferated. Some user finally flagged the video to Facebook 12 minutes later, but by then it had been copied to the internet’s darker lairs. Facebook says it has blocked 1.2 million attempts to repost the footage on its site, while taking down 300,000 more that made it past its filter that screens for such violent content.
