Army of fake social media friends to promote propaganda – Computerworld Blogs

I’m quite confident this will fail. Whoever thought this was a good idea has almost certainly never tried it. Running even one credible “sock puppet” on a discussion forum is much harder than you might think. Running several on a single forum, well enough to steer the opinion of the “crowd” against their natural inclinations is well nigh impossible. I’ve even had an Israeli twat try it on my own forum, (where I’ve left it on public display, together with my reply – they’ve never been back and I haven’t seen further attempts)
