Story audio

Facebook has helped connecting people across the world, but it has brought controversial issues, such as online hate. A new report has exposed the situation of attacking different community sectors in Australia through Facebook earlier this year.

The report focusses around Facebook hate pages such as "Aboriginal Memes" and pages referring to other ethnic and religious groups.(Image from http://dimland.blogspot.com.au/2011/10/dimland-radio-10-22-11-show-notes.html)
