YouTube has a plan "to fight online terror". YouTube says it will find dangerous videos and delete them. This includes videos on how to make fire-bombs and other deadly things. Google owns YouTube. Google's senior vice president announced four things YouTube would do about the problem of dangerous videos. Google's answer is called: "Four steps we're taking today to fight online terror." The first steps will find and delete videos that might help terrorists. Another step is to find videos that could get people to become terrorists. Finally, step four is to show "anti-terrorism" adverts.

There are many problems with these steps. It is a huge task to look at so many videos on YouTube. Over one hour of video is uploaded each second. An advertising company said one hundred years' of video is uploaded every 10 days. Another problem is that many of the videos Google wants to target are not illegal. Terrorists could easily use a BBC news video in the wrong way. Google will use software to find content that breaks its guidelines. A final problem is how to delete videos that do not break YouTube's guidelines but still have content that could get people to be terrorists.
