Participatory, user-derived and decentralized structure of new media puts it privileged and a superior position across traditional media. But on the other hand, its these features cause to be produced widespread and uncontrolled of hate speech. This study handles hate speech on Eki Sözlük which is one of Turkey’s most widely used social media networks.
