Social media is great — but be careful who you connect with:
Terrorists are hitting the social networks to fight Israel and Western countries, says Haifa University Professor Gabriel Weimann.
A statement originating from Lebanon has reported that Hizbullah is searching for material on the Israeli army’s Facebook activity. “Facebook has become a great place to obtain intelligence. Many users don’t even bother finding out who they are confirming as ‘Friend’ and to whom they are providing access to a large amount of information on their personal life,” according to Prof. Weimann. “The terrorists themselves, in parallel, are able to create false profiles that enable them to get into highly visible groups,” he says.
