At least 41 were killed at the Masjid Al Noor mosque in central Christchurch while at least seven people died inside the suburban Linwood Masjid Mosque, and one person died in hospital.
A horrific video of the New Zealand mosque massacre was blocked by Facebook during its livestream but circulated on other social media, highlighting the challenges faced by internet platforms in curbing the spread of violent content.
Brenton Tarrant, an Australian who carried out the deadly attack in the city of Christchurch, had live-streamed the attack and was later taken into custody after he was identified in the video, AFP reported.
The major internet platforms have pledged to crack down on sharing of violent images and other inappropriate content through automated systems and human monitoring, but critics say it isn't working.
Silicon Valley was unsuccessful in removing the content completely from their platform even as they tout next-gen AI and machine learning that has been created to stop this very thing from happening.
Facebook has said it uses a combination of technology tools along with its own monitors and community reports to take down inappropriate content.
And Silicon Valley firms said they were doing their best to clamp down on the dissemination of the grisly video streamed by the killer himself.
Copies of the footage reviewed by Reuters showed that some users had recorded the video playing on their own phones or computers to create a new version with a digital fingerprint different from the original.

Alphabet Inc's YouTube said: "Please know we are working vigilantly to remove any violent footage".
