Propaganda and Information Warfare In Social Media

 

Propaganda and Information Warfare Within Social Media // Published on Apr 5, 2018

A confluence of recent technologies are undermining planetary democracies, and negating our ability to act on climate change.  The global proliferation of smart phones, individually associated with a unique identifier (IP address), and thus geographical region, in conjunction with social media information on the hearts and minds of users, data mined and sold to corporations with nefarious intentions has hijacked the zeitgeist of individuals, thus regions and voting blocks and countries and entire societies by aggregating the sum-total of information.  Dark times indeed.
