Quand la guerre se fait aussi sur les réseaux sociaux

Depuis une dizaine de jours les combattants de l’Etat islamique au Levant ont lancé une offensive sur plusieurs villes irakiennes, mais aussi une offensive numérique. Au moment de la prise de Tikrit, les combattants de L’Etat islamique en Irak et au Levant ont immédiatement fait circuler sur les réseaux sociaux une série de photos où on les voit abattre des soldats de l’armée irakiennes faits prisonniers. Des photos ont été postées sur un compte twitter qui a été suspendu depuis, et qui parlait de 1.700 victimes... C’est sans doute la première fois qu’un crime de masse, s’il est avéré, est ainsi mis en scène et diffusé par ses auteurs sur des réseaux grands publics. Et cela prouve sans doute le tournant qui a été pris depuis un ou deux ans.

‘Friends’ can share your Facebook profile with the government, court rules

The decision, which is part of a New York City racketeering trial, comes as courts struggle to define privacy and civil liberties in the age of social media. In an order issued on Friday, US District Judge William Pauley III ruled that accused gangster Melvin Colon can’t rely on the Fourth Amendment to suppress Facebook evidence that led to his indictment. Colon had argued that federal investigators violated his privacy by tapping into his profile through an informant who was one of this Facebook friends.

Social Journalism

There was no Facebook, Twitter or YouTube on 9-11

In posting my remembrance, I got to thinking how much has changed technologically and how much circumstances could have been different that day if the resources we take for granted now were available then. Advanced communications technology of the day was the cell phone, which people trapped in the Twin Towers used to reach family and friends. The cell phone helped warn passengers of United Airlines 93 about the other hijackings. The heroes of that flight sacrificed their lives to save many others. That couldn't have been possible without the cell phone. The most dramatic technological changes occurred not during the last 10 years but the last five.

How 30 days without Social Media changed my life by Steve Corona

Well, here I am, reporting that I’m still alive and that the past month has been life changing- the most successful month of my existence. Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, and Hacker News were all on my blacklist, well- sort of. My goal for giving up social media was to create more value in my life, quit hoarding information, and appreciate the time that I spent with friends. So, full disclosure- I briefly used Facebook and Twitter 5 times during my haitus to pimp blog posts, and I’m okay with that, because it was for the sole purpose of sharing value (and getting more pageviews, duh).
