Armies of cyber-troops are organized to shape and manipulate public opinion

The Computational Propaganda Research Project (COMPROP) investigates the interaction of algorithms, automation and politics. This work includes analysis of how tools like social media bots are used to manipulate public opinion by amplifying or repressing political content, disinformation, hate speech, junk or fake news.

In their most recent report COMPROP have identified how organizations, often with public money, have created a system to help 'define and manage what is in the best interest of the public.'

COMPROP have compared such organizations across 28 countries, created an inventory system and logged the kinds of messages, valences (positive or negative messaging) and communication strategies used. They have also catalogued organizational forms and evaluated their capacities in terms of budgets and staffing.
