I researched them for the purpose of writing the best of ten documentaries but while researching them an idea came to my mind that how can i influence the world . Basically How can a normal blogger as myself can get their hands on some power . How can I apply the theories in these media can be applied by myself . So here are two ways by which google can be used as a tool for influencing geopolitics .
Power of unconscious :- Before explaining this power i would like to say the influencer must have a grasp of the knowledge of language of the influenced . The most common mistake the companies or people in power think that they can influence people of other cultures by showing their ways of life A prime example of how many multinationals fails to enter a new market . But past that as many people show their real self in the digital realm under the disguise of anonymity . they are easily influenced as they they likely to not put up defenses against the invisible enemy. this can be done by
- Manipulating the search results
- Manipulating the advertisement.
Power of data :- Data analysis is the emerging trends which can tell a person about recurring patterns in persons subconscious before even the person knows itself social media have already used by likes of Facebook to influence election . Now coming back to google by analyzing data “What people like to hear” the search algorithm can be devised to point user to different direction than intended to unconsciously.
