(CNN Business)Social media companies are on high alert for a verdict in the trial of former Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin for the death of George Floyd, knowing that their platforms have been used in the past to inflame tensions in the United States and that the same thing could well happen again in the wake of the verdict.

On Monday, hours before the jury began its deliberations, Facebook's vice president of content policy, Monika Bickert, said the company had designated Minneapolis as "high-risk" and was working on "preventing online content from being linked to offline harm" after the verdict.

"We have our highest protections in place and will quickly remove any content flagged that violates our hate speech and incitement to violence policies," YouTube spokesman Farshad Shadloo said in a statement.
