Researchers say Islamic State supporters have found an ephemeral platform to share propaganda on Instagram, using the service’s “stories” feature which sees posts disappear in 24 hours.
Instagram is owned by Facebook, which has come under pressure to close accounts linked to Islamic State supporters after governments said they were being used as propaganda tools.
With successive military defeats and its Twitter and Facebook accounts being shut down by the thousands, Islamic State’s propaganda drive is increasingly homemade. But, the analysis found the supporter networks crop up elsewhere.
The analysis beginning this summer identified more than 50,000 accounts linked to Islamic State supporters posting Instagram stories, according to Andrea Stroppa, who is part of the software research group Ghost Data.
Instagram had no immediate comment.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
