The research, which collected 714 posts between May and June using each platform’s reporting tool, showed that Facebook, considered the worst provider, failed to take action against 89% of those posts.

Twitter removed 11% of anti-Semitic posts and Instagram removed 18.8%. TikTok removed 18.5%. YouTube removed 21.2% The Center for Countering Digital Hatred (CCDH) said 84% of reported posts were not acted upon.
