Experts on the UK’s technology against terrorism website said that the terrorist organization Daesh was using many ways to escape the ban on extremist content from social networking platforms and websites.
According to a study of the site, the organization escapes to the smaller platforms on the Internet, and said that 49 percent of the extremist online content is currently stored on the basis of eight small platforms.
Publisher News, one of the largest groups active in publishing and promoting the organization’s news, resorted to a new platform called Connecti to promote advertising through it, and sought to spread more through the “decentralized network dweb” alternative to the current Internet, as a safe alternative to the application of social networking site Telegram.
The organization tried to use other platforms such as “go like” but its attempt failed. According to Abdel Reheem Said, an expert on terrorism, the organization tried to use other platforms such as ask, viber, baaz as platforms to facilitate the dissemination of content, without removing user accounts.
Experts warned in the “tech against terrorism” site of the transmission of the media war with Daesh to the alternative internet dweb because it allows users to greater privacy. Thus, it makes it difficult to work groups to track extremist activity online, hinting that a number of elements of the organization has used platforms on this network such as zero net.
According to the website, Daesh members will not fully use the alternative network unless Telegram’s management removes their content and restricts their creation of channels and accounts again, focusing on tracking terrorist activities on smaller platforms after success in reducing proliferation of terrorism on large platforms.
