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.

I have some health problems and the only thing that I'm able to do at the moment, is to spend time here with you, which makes me really happy, and to spend time on pharmacyreviews.md hoping to find out the answer. So thank you to making up my day, and for a good mood!

This is an interesting read about Facebook's struggle sorting through all the cyber crap coming from Russia while balancing freedom of speech issues. It seems US intelligence and Facebook finally figured out they need to communicate more often.
