Here’s another example why social media is a powerful tool. With the recent “Kony” video that went extremely viral a few weeks ago, facebook users set their “like” buttons alight and “shared” the video with all their “facebook friends”. Here’s another take on the “Kony” video and its purpose. The Vigilant Citizen posted an interesting article on why the “Kony” video was created and its potential uses. It seems that the video was created and is being used as propaganda for a war in Africa. As the results showed, the “virulent” success of the video proved that social media can be used for many, more clandestine, purposes. After running the “experiment”, the creator of the controversial video was conveniently discredited when he appeared on video having a meltdown in San Diego. It is also interesting to note that the organization that created the video “Invisible Children” is funded and backed by organizations such as USAID and JP Morganwho had vested interests in the “Arab Spring” uprisings that resulted in new leadership and new investment opportunities.

Like the saying goes…..”always follow the money”…..
