End of an era LiveLeak is closed

The internet, seen as the greatest weapon of freedom of information, unfortunately, has moved away from this freedom as it has become commercialized. This situation, which occurs especially on social media and video platforms, causes the slightest violence and removal of content with +18 items from the platforms.

LiveLeak, one of the sites that oppose this situation, was founded in 2006 as a video platform that defends its freedom. Unfortunately, the site came to the end of its publishing life after 15 years of resistance. According to a statement, the team, which “has no strength to fight,” decided to close the site.

Hayden Hweitt, the only known member of the site’s founding team, stated as he bid farewell to the broadcast from LiveLeak. “We have worked on this project for 15 years. LiveLeak has accomplished everything it can, and it’s time to move on. I hope you like Itemfix and find it entertaining and instructive. he gave his statements.

The site, which has long been a staple of the internet, removed all violent videos from the platform. Fully committed to the Itemfix project, the LiveLeak team will no longer allow such videos and will instantly block uploaders.

The site, which interprets past posts as redefining the media, has also been the focus of many criticisms over time. LiveLeak’s most popular period was 2014. During this period, the site containing the video of the massacre of a US journalist by ISIS received heavy traffic. But after the traffic sparked criticism, Hweitt announced that ISIS videos would never be featured again.
