Google’s efforts to combat online trolls and harassment has already paid dividends, with the company seeing a 10 percent drop in the number of people reporting being harassed online.
But it’s not just Google, or even Facebook, that’s seeing the effects of online harassment.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is calling on the tech giant to implement more stringent policies to help keep its workers and their communities safe.
The Chamber’s executive director, Mike Noguchi, said on a conference call with reporters Tuesday that Google should implement “realistic safety measures” in the wake of a wave of violent and hateful harassment.
Noguchis call comes just days after the company said it would stop allowing users to make personal attacks against each other.
But the company is not alone in its effort to help the online communities around it.
In fact, the companies efforts have also been criticized by some members of Congress who want to see the companies hand over the reins to their local law enforcement agencies.
