"Bonding, Bridging, & Social Media: Facebook's Role in Preserving Democracy"
The 2016 U.S. presidential election highlighted the ability of Russian intelligence to exploit social media to target fragmented social communities and amplify its propaganda efforts within them. Former FBI counterintelligence agent Asha Rangappa examines how Russia took advantage of an already existing vulnerability in America's social fabric, and its implications for the future of democracy.
