This report was compiled in the months following the shootings at the Al Noor Mosque and Linwood Islamic Centre in Christchurch, New Zealand, on 15 March 2019.

To understand the effect of the attack on at-risk audiences on different platforms, we gathered data from Google search queries related to the attack, along with the aggregate location, age and gender of those searching. We examined YouTube data related to the music played by the attacker before, during and after the attack. Finally, we looked at the number of right-wing extremist Facebook pages liked by people in New Zealand and broke down the results according to the number of people who had liked one or more pages.
