Today, the industry in media, communication and journalism has seen a big growth in the use of social media during wars like, Russian Ukraine war as well as the new war in Sudan. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has shell-shocked the world. A particular threat of social media is that propaganda campaigns can reach online exposure at an unprecedented scale. It is a fact to consider how social media has been weaponized, both before and during the hostilities. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has been described as the first full-blown “social media war” (Suciu, 2022). It also charts new territory in other ways because of the digital transformation: it is the first full-blown cyber war and the first hacker war featuring both state and non-state actors attacking the information infrastructures of the combatants (Conger and Satariano, 2022).

It is interesting to note that the world will never forget Mr George Flyod’s dying story in America, a story covered by a 17-year-old teenager Darnella Frazier who filmed the incident which almost brought the world to its knees and posted it on Facebook (social media platform).

In support of this, one of the articles............

This is a celebratory publication since it is the first one after SCOPUS has accepted to index the journal of African Films and Diaspora Studies (JAFDIS) in the month of September 2021, which we set up in 2018. The Editorial Board and its support staff celebrate with all those authors whose articles has been accepted and published like, an examination on sexual harassment activities in the South African professional performing arts industry, South African discourse on health communication: assessing the intersection of HIV/AIDS messages; social media & television program and many more as listed on the publication.   Favour seems to have followed JAFDIS since its debut in 2018. When it first started it began as a bi-annual publication (twice a year) but became triennial (three times a year) after only one year (typically it takes us years to nurture a journal to move up from one frequency to another). When we first submitted the journal to SCOPUS for evaluation, it was reje............
