about this item

This book investigates terrorist activity online and the increasing use of social media to disseminate the ideologies of terrorist organisations though a powerful visual and interactive medium. It explores the use of social media by terrorist organisations and the use of social media postings in the press, which bring terrorist organisations to the attention of international audiences, and the legal and ethical implications of this. Incorporating a range of theoretical perspectives this book assumes little technical knowledge aiming instead to identify the various types of terrorism conducted via social media and consider if current legislation can meet the demands of managing this problem.
