Richard speaks to Neil Sanders about online skulduggery by some very rich people and some very powerful secret organisations. The manipulation is being done using Facebook and Twitter, but is not limited to social media websites. The vast majority of people are totally unaware of what is going on. Fundamentally there are two aspects. The first is acquiring your personal data. The second is manipulating your opinions, actions and emotions by using this data or using other psychological tricks. Social Media, it seems may have been used to manipulate both the outcome of Brexit and the outcome of the U.S. election. Much emphasis in our media is placed on the dangers of social media due to ordinary people mis-using the internet. But little is being exposed about the rich and powerful mis-using the internet, who have access to far more sophisticated techniques than you or I.
