  • ISIS is a modern non-state actor known for committing brutal acts of terror and its extreme political ideology in Iraq and Syria
  • The organization has used online platforms and social media networks to radicalize and recruit many people, most of which have been youth
  • ISIS is now recruiting through online dating websites

June 01, 2017: People watched in disbelief when hundreds of youngsters left their countries to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). These youngsters had decent comfortable lives in their countries, however, they left. This was the remarkable success of the approach adopted by ISIS to recruit new members and supporters for their organizations. The organization used social media to recruit or even radicalize the young minds. Platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Youtube along with many other small time websites were used.

Two years ago, an underground hacking group called ‘Anonymous’ waged an online cyber war against ISIS. The famous ‘hacktivist’ group Anonymous successfully hacked multiple ISIS accounts. It was a famous online campaign when thousands of ISIS profiles were exposed online. Interestingly, Anonymous also revealed that ISIS recruiters are present on dating websites. A website called ISISsingles.com was one such site where ISIS members would seek brides. However, it was really just a recruitment method.

Now it looks like the dating websites approach is back. ISIS is reportedly back on dating websites again. According to the Middle East Media Research Institute, based in Washington DC, ISIS now has advertisements placed on dating pages. This was confirmed by reports from Jordan. A girl from Jordan was stopped on her way to Syria. Her family claims that a militant living in Raqqa promised their daughter a lavish house with servants and a handsome fighter for a husband.

This is precisely how ISIS has been so successful. It gives false promises to the youth; a luxurious lifestyle that is indeed attractive for the young adults. They are promised all the riches if they somehow make it to Syria. This tactic combined with the effective internet usage makes ISIS a threat to the global online community.

With the advent of Internet, an era of Information technology has dawned. Information and content is now everywhere. News has become a 24×7 commodity. Computers, smartphones, blogs and websites have become a  part of an ecosystem of digitized information.

Now, the news sources are just a click away. One click, and the next moment you will see hundreds of links before your eyes. In other words, Online Content has become a part of our life in this ‘Era of Digitization’.

But the scenario wasn’t the same if we talk about say a decade ago. News sources were limited in form of news papers, magazines, and Television channels.As they say, if it was not at CNN, it was not a news. But now the information and news landscape has seen what we call ‘Democratization of media’. If a local news paper or TV channel or a news agency does not want to take up or cover a news, so be it. Click a video or jot down the information and share it at Whatsapp or YouTube or you blog and lo and behold. Your content is now visible to the whole world. Anyone from anywhere on the Planet Earth (or even in globe!) can see the news and views shared by you and comment and spread. That is the power of Online Media. That is why ,we say: “The world is on our fingertips now!”
