Alternative Influence • Data & Society
<p>YouTube is a principal online news source for young people. Which is why it is concerning that YouTube, a subsidiary of Google, has become the single most important hub by which an extensive network of far-right influencers profit from broadcasting propaganda to young viewers.

“Social networking between influencers makes it easy for audience members to be incrementally exposed to, and come to trust, ever more extremist political positions,” writes Lewis, who outlines how YouTube incentivizes their behavior. Lewis illustrates common techniques that these far-right influencers use to make money as they cultivate alternative social identities and use production value to increase their appeal as countercultural social underdogs. The <a href="">report</a> offers a data visualization of this network to show how connected influencers act as a conduit for viewership.</p>

Read it and worry. For all the right-wingers' wailing about Google, the reality is that YouTube is their most effective recruiting sergeant - and they don't pay a penny for it.
