Day in the Life: North Korea on Social Media

So you think social media is opening up the world, making it more transparent and honest? Well, what would you say if I told you that North Korea is all over social media?

It has a website. And a Facebook page. And a Twitter feed. And my favorite, a YouTube page filled with propaganda videos. Naturally, they’re also on Google+ and Pinterest and many others. All courtesy of the Korean Friends Association of the USA, who really put the PR in DPRK. 

My mind is blown. Just goes to show you: social media can be used for many purposes. Not all of them necessarily good.

And that’s my post for the day. Thanks, Mashable, for the inspiration.
