A suspected gunman broadcast live footage on Facebook of the attack on one mosque in the city of Christchurch, mirroring the carnage played out in video games, after publishing a "manifesto" in which he denounced immigrants. In 2017 it said it would hire 3,000 people to review videos and other posts, on top of the 4,500 people Facebook already tasks with identifying criminal and other questionable material for removal.
Facebook acted swiftly to contain the fallout. Still, the problem persists.

"I think this will add to all the calls around the world for more effective regulation of social media platforms".

Users intent on sharing the violent video took several approaches ― doing so at times with an nearly military precision.
With billions of users, Facebook and YouTube are "ungovernable" at this point, said Vaidhyanathan, who called Facebook's livestreaming service a "profoundly stupid idea".
"There is no fool-proof way to catch acts of violence on video or images with the technology that we have today", she said.
"The stream is not analysed, stored or processed by LIVE4 in any way, we have no ability (even if we wanted to) to look at the live streams as they are happening or after it's completed", he said in written comments to Reuters.
