'Social Media and the Military': Waiting for NATO to Start the Conversation
In this episode of 'Social Media and the Military', David Bailey reflects on the prospects that social media have created in post conflict zones. There remains the question that, if social media tools had been available in the late 1990's and early 2000's, these could have contributed to more successful influence activities in Bosnia, on behalf of NATO. The lessons are hard learned, but NATO forces risk repeating these mistakes through social media avenues. The inherent risk lies in not 'starting the conversation', in not engaging in a two-way flow of information.
