Lexology: Social Links: Behavioral Targeting Under Scrutiny from Lawmakers

Apr 6, 2022 7:37:38 AM

Recently Bryce Webster-Jacobsen, Director of Intelligence Operations at GroupSense, was featured in Lexology's "Social Links: Behavioral Targeting Under Scrutiny from Lawmakers" article. Bryce was quoted from his Axios feature: Activist Movements Drive Misinformation Mayhem. The Lexology highlight is below. 

Like COVID variants, misinformation in social media surges

Recent studies have shown a steep rise in misinformation being spread by online gangs and other groups responsible for coordinated inauthentic behavior (CIB). These movements continue to spread conspiracy theories and anti-vaccination rhetoric, and often use bullying tactics to harass and intimidate influencers, health officials, and journalists who oppose their alt-views. Many believe that these actors are causing more harm than government-backed groups, given their ability to infiltrate social media platforms, and the difficulty in regulating their informal tactics.

Meta, Facebook’s parent company, recently banned adversarial pages that were associated with a European anti-vaccination movement called “Viral Vendetta,” or “V_V,” as this Graphika report explains.

As Axios recently reported, “Loosely organized activist movements can be more dangerous than bot-driven campaigns that are often backed by state or government actors, because they link real-world people who can encourage each other to take more drastic actions, according to Bryce Webster-Jacobsen, director of intelligence operations at GroupSense, a threat intelligence firm.”
