It was reported to the company 29 minutes after the video started and viewed 4,000 times before being removed, he said.

The managers of five government-related funds with more than $90 billion in funds under management say they are adding their weight to callers for multi-national social media owners Facebook, Twitter and Google to take action against the spread of harmful content. "We are therefore also investigating whether there have been breaches of any New Zealand laws or regulations by these companies, and monitoring potential changes to Government policy". For example, some law enforcement organisations maintain databases of hash values of illegal images and videos.

Facebook has released new figures relating to the views and shares of live-streamed footage captured during the recent attacks against New Zealand mosques. The gunman live-streamed 17 minutes of the attack.

Facebook had earlier said it deleted more than 1.5 million copies of the video in the first day after the incident.

"It is simply incomprehensible and unacceptable that Facebook can not prevent that kind of content being streamed to the world", he said.

Today, New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said in a speech at Parliament that social media sites must be accountable for what is published on their platforms.

"There is no question that ideas and language of division and hate have existed for decades". "We can not simply sit back and accept that these platforms just exist and what is said is not the responsibility of the place where they are published", she told parliament on Tuesday. "They are the publisher. It can not be a case of all profit, no responsibility".

Major advertisers have suspended their social media advertising and the country's telcos have asked for Google, Facebook and Twitter to "urgently discuss" a solution to the problem of videos such as live footage of the Christchurch shootings being upload and shared on their platforms.

Before Facebook became aware of the video, Sonderby said a user on 8chan had already posted a link to copy of it on a file sharing site, which is how it became so wide spread.

Australian Ethical said it was "monitoring the information about Facebook's actions to remove the content" to determine whether to continue investing in the US-based behemoth.

Facebook said itself and other members of the Global Internet Forum to Counter Terrorism (GIFCT) "have been in close contact since the attack".

Facebook said it removed 1.5 million videos showing the attack in the first 24 hours after it occurred.

The CEOs of Vodafone New Zealand, Spark and 2degrees said they had taken the unprecedented step of jointly identifying and suspending access to sites that were hosting video footage taken by the attacker.

EFF also called for guidelines that urge social platforms to be transparent about how many posts and accounts they remove, and give users notice and a chance to appeal if one of their posts is taken down.
