Online radicalitation is a process to develop hate for an outgroup and that is a big problem today. Luckely there is several ways to prevent it, like: learn more abut it at school, try to think about what you do online and if it can hurt anyone or if it changes the way you look at an out group, and I also think it is wise to try to bond or get to know someone from an outgroup. All these things can prevent online radicalitation and make it esier for the world to notise that online radicalitsaton is a big problem and it needs to get more attention today.

Radicalization represents, for me, straying from the right path onto the wrong one. Online

radicalization has a great impact on young people because, in these times, on social networks it is permitted to post content with terrorist connotations. A few reasons why young people choose this path are the marginalization they may suffer, caused by people who can’t accept the differences between them or poverty, which causes a deep seated frustration and envy.

Online radicalization can be prevented by cooperating with the big companies on the Internet (such as Google, Facebook, YouTube) as to restrict access to content with terrorist

connotations and to eliminate terrorist propaganda on the Internet; founding companies whose purpose is to combat content which can instigate hatred; volunteering, as it has great power against radicalization because it promotes understanding and tolerance concerning our differences.

Online radicalisation is becoming a bigger problem in our day and age. If we don't prevent it, it will keep growing and affect the younger generation, which it already is happening. Since mostly everyone has access to the internet and can share their thoughts, we have to be careful how words come off to other people.

The best way to maybe prevent it is to focus more on their real life instead of the digital aspect. Maybe they don't have a good relationship with the people around them, so they become prejudiced and take their anger out on the internet.

In my opinion we should think long and hard about the consequences of radicalisation to yourself, our family and friends, and our basic values. We need to keep an eye on family members, friends and others you think may be susceptible to radicalisation. Have their behaviour patterns changed? Have they become withdrawn or introvert for no apparent reason? Has their belief structure altered? Are mutual friends and acquaintances also concerned? We have to report flat out actual or suspected extremist approaches/communications to yourself or others.

Online radicalisation is more of a process where people develop hate for an outgroup, and i think there are many ways to solve this: We can teach youths more about radicalitation at school, teach people to open their eyes for what they really see on soisial media and maybe for your own safity, you can try to bond with someone from an outgroup. I think this will help provent online radicalitation and also make the world more focused on the theme because it needs to get attention now, right away.
