This study investigates how restrictions on accessing social media platforms impact far-right hate actors in Germany. Social media channels have assumed a significant role for far-right mobilizations and, at the same time, contributed to a reorientation and re-organization of far-right politics. Since 2015, with the heightened influx of migrants to Europe, social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have developed into effective amplifiers of far-right messaging and contributed to the transnationalization of far-right discourse and mobilization. Today, many people encounter far-right content via these platforms. Moreover, hate actors make use of instant communication formats to stage their ideology as a lifestyle – a strategy for appealing to young people, in particular.
