“From terrorist propaganda distributed by organizations such as ISIS, to political activism, diverse voices now use social media as their major public platform. Organizations deploy bots — virtual, automated posters — as well as enormous paid “armies” of human posters or trolls, and hacking schemes to overwhelmingly infiltrate the public platform with their message. A professor of information science has been awarded a grant to continue his research that will provide an in-depth understanding of the major propagators of viral, insidious content and the methods that make them successful.”
Phi Beta Iota: Tools are used to create content that reflects the root nature of the society. We are entering an era in which ethical education will challenge governance corruption for influence. If we spent as much on peace as do on war — as much on education as we do on lies and propaganda — we would quickly create a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for all. To get there we need educated moral leaders OR an uprising of the masses seeking the rebalance natural power.
