Social media battlefield

Pakistan Press Foundation

Impliticly, social media has an effective role in our lives. It chalks out various knowledgeable material to the people. But at the same time, it seems to be working as an invisible battlefield for the propaganda masters. It is used as a weapon to undermine a country. It leaves a deep impact on human mind. The propaganda masters present on the social media ignite the feelings of other people to spread animosity and to act violently which results into subsequent domestic and international conflicts. As a reality, the world is moving towards new warfare techniques. The tradition of conventional warfare is over now. The world warring the 5th generation war. This is a kind of war which is fought with ideas and propagandas. To imbue those warmongering thoughts in the people, social media appears to be the best platform to be used. For instance, China a predictable superpower has now allowed her American ambassadors to create social media accounts and counter every propaganda caused by USA. Their delegations are lashing out their every rival on their Twitter accounts. They seem to be following their “Wolf Warrior 2.0” startegy which is to act aggressively towards any rival country of China by using modern techniques. So, we have to fathom the proper use of social media and indicate every threat which can ramp up aggression in our people against our state.
