But what if the likes of Facebook, Pinterest, twitter, and so forth, had been available in World War II. Hitler would have chosen Facebook, for sure. [‘F’ for Fuehrer?]. He would want to be out front, in the public view.For Goering, it would be Pinterest, with separate boards labelled: uniforms, medals, swords, etc.
As for Eva… Pinterest yet again, I’m certain. Boards for Scottie dogs, and shoes and dresses, for a start.Let’s face it, she was no slouch with a camera. She was working at the photographer’s when she first met up with Adolf. We should not forget Joseph Goebbels, head of propaganda. You guessed it: twitter.
Who knows what impact social media might have had on wars of the past or will have on conflicts in the future. I recently tried to answer a more simple question: What will be their impact on the course of true love? Can the latter be stymied by social media, by the likes of Facebook and twitter? Read my story Coffee with Luna, newly published by Alfie Dog Fiction, and see for yourself how romance hangs in the balance when a nerdy student investigates his potential girlfriend online.
