In response to concerns it’s become a means of radical promotion, YouTube has now added an option for flagging content that is terrorist in nature.
When you flag a video as inappropriate, “promotes terrorism” now appears as an option under the “violent or repulsive content” category on the Google-owned website.
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) called the new terrorism flag a “good first step toward scrubbing mainstream Internet sites of terrorist propaganda.”
Lieberman first voiced concerns about radical Islamic videos on YouTube in May 2008, according to a YouTube blog post.
The site opted to make no changes at the time but encouraged users to use the flagging feature. Now “promotes terrorism” is a flag option.
