Carmilla Online's Gioacchino Toni writes about the concept of online radicalization on YouTube which was originally formulated by Australian researcher Luke Munn in his essay featured in RESET. Simply put, online radicalization on YouTube refers to the process by which individuals are exposed to and influenced by extremist ideologies or viewpoints through the content - that is, videos - they consume on Google's platform. It involves the use of YouTube videos and channels to promote radical or extremist ideas, recruit individuals to extremist groups, and spread propaganda. These videos often use persuasive techniques, emotional appeals, and manipulation to attract and radicalize individuals who may already be vulnerable, disillusioned, or seeking answers to certain issues. As Munn explains, the algorithms and recommendation systems used by YouTube can play a significant role in the process of radicalization. These systems analyze user preferences, viewing history, and engagement patterns to suggest similar or related content. In some cases, this can create a filter bubble (Eli Pariser) that reinforces extremist views and limits exposure to alternative perspectives. This kind of radicalization is very frequent in video game spaces like online chats forums, image-boards and video sharing sites.
