Manipulating public opinion using social media

This is something that I think is becoming a serious problem for several countries. I think the result of the last elections for several countries showed how the use of social media can easily spread fake news and sow a bigger divide on people who have different political beliefs. It's sad that organizations like Facebook saw this problem coming but opted not to prevent the negative impacts it has on society.

Propaganda is propaganda. I'm sure a lot of countries use social media to push their political ideals on their people. That's why it's important to have a discerning eye to see what's true and what's not.
