Former Chair of the International Network Against Cyber-Hate (INACH)
Con to the question "Are Social Networking Sites Good for Our Society?"
"On MySpace, as well as on the social networking site Facebook.com, there are hundreds of groups featuring the words 'Hitler' or 'Nazi,' many established to promote neo-Nazism and other anti-Semitic feelings...
In the Internet era, it appears there are more people interested in spewing hate than in countering it. On the social networking sites and on YouTube, inflammatory, hate-filled content overwhelms the limited efforts to promote tolerance and to teach diversity. And, as we have seen, hate speech inspires violence."
