While wars are fought between armies or militant teams, conflicts have their keyboard warriors too. It is estimated that greater than half of the world makes use of social media, and many individuals don’t go to conventional media as a supply of knowledge in any respect. As social media use will increase, unease has grown amongst EU decision-makers in regards to the energy of those platforms to doubtlessly distort individuals’s view of the world.
