Dozens of ISIS propaganda accounts are openly sharing extremist content on Google Plus.

An investigation showed the social network has become a breeding ground for pro-ISIS communities despite being abolished from sites like Facebook and Twitter.

Researchers said the accounts did 'little to hide' their affiliation, with many posting pictures of ISIS flags and soldiers and openly professing their support for the group.

A Google spokesperson told The Hill that Google 'rejects terrorism' and is on track to have a 10,000-strong team monitoring extremist content across its various platforms in 2018.

They said: 'Google rejects terrorism and has a strong track record of taking swift action against terrorist content.

Google has also faced backlash for the frequency at which extremist content slips past the filters on its video-sharing platform YouTube.

Last month YouTube announced it had taken down more than eight million
