    “The Philippine government claims the country’s communist insurgency will be defeated by mid-2019. However the insurgency is thriving in cyberspace, using multiple social media platforms to carry out recruitment campaigns and to spread its ideology. The militants will likely remain active on the mainstream social media platforms of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter as they face little in the way of online crackdowns.” https://www.janes.com/images/assets/808/84808/Philippines_militants_use_cyberspace_to_recruit_and_organise.pdf

    “Excessive social media use is comparable to drug addiction” (Michigan State University) https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-01/msu-esm010719.php
    “Bad decision-making is a trait oftentimes associated with drug addicts and pathological gamblers, but what about people who excessively use social media? New research from Michigan State University shows a connection between social media use and impaired risky decision-making, which is commonly deficient in substance addiction.
    “Around one-third of humans on the planet are using social media, and some of these people are displaying maladaptive, excessive use of these sites,” said Dar Meshi, lead author and assistant professor at MSU. “Our findings will hopefully motivate the field to take social media overuse seriously.”
    The findings, published in the Journal of Behavior Addictions, are the first to examine the relationship between social media use and risky decision-making capabilities.”
