How to report Daesh’s terrorist propaganda

Social media is an important tool for Daesh. They use it to release their version of the news. They use it to recruit vulnerable people. They use it to spread hate and to disseminate their violent, terrorist propaganda. But it is a tool that can be impacted upon.

Your chance to make a difference

In 2017, the UK has taken down 2,000 pieces of Daesh propaganda a week. Daesh activity on Twitter has fallen 45% since 2014. These are positive steps, but social media could be a more hostile environment for them.

Anyone can be part of making this happen. If you see, or find, Daesh propaganda on social media channels you can quickly, easily and confidentially report it to that channel. They will be able to take it down and investigate the profiles that are sharing and distributing it.

Below are some simple graphics that show you how to report anything you see on YouTube, Twitter or Facebook. Your chance to make a difference in the fight against Daesh. Your chance to help #takedaeshdown.

For Daesh, it can be a powerful way of quickly disseminating hate through their existing networks and beyond. See below for how to report any Daesh content you find.
