What it takes to be an American: you must believe you are free. We are challenged by the constraints of our government and the dishonesty of our various news outlets. What makes us American is our confidence to post, tweet and march about legislative decisions that we do not agree with. We fought for democracy, but what happens when our system is provoked? Ab-solute, pandemonium.
Project Meddle was released today (1/29/18), identifying our careless cyber security network and Russia's infiltration in our media outlets and platforms; naming their success as the 'Advertising Campaign of the Century'. The election was in full swing, and Russia utilized Donald Trump's loose lips and unwavering ego to their advantage. Who could of asked for a better mascot?
The project highlights Russia's marketing techniques, similar to advertising industry standards. They disrupted the market by analyzing Facebook's integrated data tools. With the aid of data, they created experiential stunts, implemented immersive platforms and, of course, had a public figure blasting his 'great relationship' with them all over social media and various news outlets. Welcome to the age of activism.
