Jihadi Media Foundations On Facebook And Twitter

August 4, 2013 | By Mansour Al-Hadj*
Inquiry & Analysis Series No. 1004

Media foundations connected to jihadi groups and jihad-supporting organizations, which once released their productions - videos, statements, and more - over jihadi forums, have turned to social media websites, mainly Facebook and Twitter, because of these forums' inability to provide reliable means for communication, interaction, and publication due to constant and often lengthy disruption of their online presence.

This report will discuss official and unofficial jihadi media foundations' presence on Facebook and Twitter, and will identify the foundations' accounts and provide background information regarding their affiliation and activities.

Part II of this series, to be published in the near future, will focus on the Facebook and Twitter accounts of jihad-supporting clerics, preachers, and scholars who support jihad as well as prominent writers in jihadi forums. Part III will profile Facebook and Twitter accounts related to jihadi groups.
