Can open-source software create war?
With social medias it is true that the bigger it gets and the more users it has, it also becomes more powerful. However the users can only use the tools and functions provided by the administrator or owner of the social media service. Hence it is not to say that social media technologies can't be used for purposes not intended from the beginning, like building extremist-groups or likewise. This matter can become even more dangerous in terms of open-sourced software; because the users basically are creating it they also know what loopholes there might be and some can therefore use this for creating viruses or so cald worms. But the link below takes this to a whole new level and could actually have the potential to create war, you can maybe even say that it already has.
