War Goes Viral - How social media is being weaponized across the world
A quite an interesting article in The Atlantic that investigates how social media is now be used in war to advance the causes of the combatants. This is not just being done by groups such as Daesh and now other non state actors, but also by state actors such as Russia, China, Venezuela and others for various reasons. Daesh have been acclaimed as being innovative in their social media enterprise but according to the article all they have done is plagiarise others by copying ideas and methods commonly used in media such as advertising, music videos and movies.

It is well worth taking the time to read.
