Brad Smith, President of Microsoft, asked Social Networking Platforms to learn, act more and find a way to overcome terrorism following the March 15 incident in New Zealand’s mosques, which was broadcast on Facebook.

“Through Microsoft, we have identified improvements that we can make and move quickly to implement, including the rapid and extensive implementation of current technology tools to identify and classify extreme violent content and changes in the process that enable our users to mark this content,” Smith said.
