Social Media: Blessing or Curse for Pakistan?
What about terrorist groups like ISIS using viral images and videos to radicalize young people? Or the state-run intelligence agencies and their agents and bots using Facebook, Twitter and YouTube to spread disinformation to manipulate and divide people in countries and societies seen as hostile to their interests?
Is Pakistan being targeted by India's RAW and other hostile foreign intelligence agencies using social media to divide and manipulate Pakistanis by spreading fake news and doctored videos and images? Are they following the blueprint of the Russian intelligence troll farms that were used against America before, during and after the 2016 US presidential elections?
Should there be any codes of conduct or rules and regulations for social media users? Or should it be free-for-all?
