These modern day tools are helping Terrorists spread their propaganda and ideology to thousands of online sympathisers across the world. Indeed, the groups has actively been using social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and YouTube and etc. to recruit new would be members. This is being done through images and the streaming of violent online viral videos filmed and professionally edited that are targeting young and impressionable people. Portraying a glamorised and ‘cool’ image, Terrorists groups fighters are beginning to act as the new rock stars of global cyber jihad. The Internet therefore is becoming the virtual playground for extremist views to be reinforced and act as an echo chamber.
