Narrative Landmines - Rumors, Islamist Extremism, and the Struggle for Strategic Influence

Narrative Landmines - Rumors, Islamist Extremism, and the Struggle for Strategic Influence | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

Islamic extremism is the dominant security concern of many contemporary governments, spanning the industrialized West to the developing world. Narrative Landmines explores how rumors fit into and extend narrative systems and ideologies, particularly in the context of terrorism, counter-terrorism, and extremist insurgencies. Its concern is to foster a more sophisticated understanding of how oral and digital cultures work alongside economic, diplomatic, and cultural factors that influence the struggles between states and non-state actors in the proverbial battle of hearts and minds. Beyond face-to-face communication, the authors also address the role of new and social media in the creation and spread of rumors.

 As narrative forms, rumors are suitable to a wide range of political expression, from citizens, insurgents, and governments alike, and in places as distinct as Singapore, Iraq, and Indonesia—the case studies presented for analysis. The authors make a compelling argument for understanding rumors in these contexts as “narrative IEDs,” low-cost, low-tech weapons that can successfully counter such elaborate and expansive government initiatives as outreach campaigns or strategic communication efforts. While not exactly the same as the advanced technological systems or Improvised Explosive Devices to which they are metaphorically related, narrative IEDs nevertheless operate as weapons that can aid the extremist cause.

The Art of Managing Reputational Risk

The Art of Managing Reputational Risk | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

Why would a company’s executives make a strategic decision that they know will cost the company a staggering $2 billion in annual sales? Ask CVS. The drugstore giant recently announced that it will forego approximately $2 billion in sales of tobacco and tobacco-related products. The reason, according to CEO Larry J. Merlo: “We came to the decision that providing health care and selling cigarettes just don’t go together in the same setting.”

Online and uncivil? Patterns and determinants of incivility in newspaper website comments

Online and uncivil? Patterns and determinants of incivility in newspaper website comments | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

Incivilityinpublicdiscussionshasreceivedincreasingattentionfromacademicandpopular commentators in recent years. In an effort to better understand the nature and determi-nants of such incivility, this study examined a 3-week census of articles and comments posted to a local newspaper’s website—totaling more than 300 articles and 6,400 com-ments. Te results of the content analysis show that incivility occurs frequently and is asso-ciated with key contextual factors, such as the topic of the article and the sources quoted within the article. We also ��find that, contrary to popular perceptions, frequent commentersare more civil than are infrequent commenters, and uncivil commenters are no less likely than civil commenters to use evidence in support of their claims.

Social influences in opinion dynamics: The role of conformity

Social influences in opinion dynamics: The role of conformity | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

We study the effects of social influences in opinion dynamics. In particular, we define a simple model, based on the majority rule voting, in order to consider the role of conformity. Conformity is a central issue in social psychology as it represents one of people’s behaviors that emerges as a result of their interactions. The proposed model represents agents, arranged in a network and provided with an individual behavior, that change opinion in function of those of their neighbors. In particular, agents can behave as conformists or as nonconformists. In the former case, agents change opinion in accordance with the majority of their social circle (i.e., their neighbors); in the latter case, they do the opposite, i.e., they take the minority opinion. Moreover, we investigate the nonconformity both on a global and on a local perspective, i.e., in relation to the whole population and to the social circle of each nonconformist agent, respectively.

Une proposition de loi socialiste relative à la protection du secret des affaires veut instaurer un véritable cadre juridique en la matière

Une proposition de loi socialiste relative à la protection du secret des affaires veut instaurer un véritable cadre juridique en la matière 

M. Bruno LE ROUX, député (PS) de Seine-Saint-Denis, président du groupe socialiste, M. Jean-Jacques URVOAS, député (PS) du Finistère, président de la commission des Lois, et les membres du groupe à l'Assemblée nationale ont déposé dans le courant de l'été, une proposition de loi relative à la protection du secret des affaires. Le texte vise, selon l'exposé des motifs, à assurer la protection du capital stratégique des entreprises -- c'est-à-dire empêcher la captation, l'utilisation indue ou la divulgation d'informations non brevetables mais indispensables à leur fonctionnement et à leur développement -- en établissant "un cadre destiné à la fois à prévenir, dissuader et réprimer les atteintes qu'elles sont susceptibles de subir en ce domaine, dans le but de protéger nos positions concurrentielles, notre capacité d'innovation et, in fine, nos bassins d'emplois".

Rappelons que lors de la précédente législature, une proposition de loi (UMP) visant à sanctionner la violation du secret des affaires avait été déposée par M. Bernard CARAYON, mais n'avait pas été au bout de son parcours législatif.

Messagerie mobile: la publicité passera-t-elle par les robots ?

Messagerie mobile: la publicité passera-t-elle par les robots ? | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

Incarner une marque a toujours été le défi et l’objectif ultime d'une entreprise.

On entend souvent dire que celles-ci se doivent avoir une identité, une culture, des valeurs… Des traits profondément humains, finalement. Derrière le concept, un défi : incarner, dans son action et dans sa communication, une certaine idée de l’entreprise.

Ce challenge semble aujourd’hui à portée de main avec l’avènement de robots intelligents capables… de converser avec des humains. La montée en puissance d’intelligences artificielles de plus en plus autonomes met à portée de main le vieux rêve de communicant d’une marque incarnant les valeurs de l’entreprise : la publicité de demain passera-t-elle par les robots ?

MH17 : 4 énormes manipulations colportées par nos médias, et jamais corrigées… | Digital Strategy and Influence | Scoop.it

Ce qui m’aura vraiment frappé dans cette histoire du MH 17 (mais sans grande surprise, hélas, Mark Twain disait déjà avec justesse au XIXe siècle : “Si vous ne lisez pas le journal, vous n’êtes pas informé ; si vous lisez le journal, vous êtes mal informé.”) c’est la capacité des médias à sauter sur n’importe quelle information allant dans leur sens, la répéter en boucle comme si c’était parole d’évangile sans même faire preuve d’une once d’esprit pragmatique ou de méfiance élémentaire (chapeau le 4e pouvoir ! D’une servilité quasi absolue au 1er…), de laisser de coté ou de mépriser ce qui pourrait affaiblir cette information, et d’à peine évoquer son caractère faux quand il est révélé.
