ISIL gains power most prominently by acquiring land and people in Syria and Iraq, and only uses social media to arrogantly brag about their conquests, Max Abrahms, professor of political science at Northeastern University, said. Posting massacres online can even lead governments to become more resolute in fighting the extremists.
“I think that this entire initiative of trying to combat IS by becoming more savvy online is mistaken,” Abrahms said.
