Prof. Nevzat Tarhan: "The Brits see social media as the new battlefield"
Founding Rector and Chairman of the Board of Directors of Uskudar University, Psychiatrist Prof. Nevzat Tarhan said in his speech that social media awareness is an issue that young people need. Tarhan stated that they will implement the project as a conscious awareness raising project in the form of cooperation with the community and young people, as Uskudar Governor Murat Sefa Demiryurek did very successfully. They named this brigade the 72nd brigade. A brigade is build of 1000 people. Why don't they call it a social media working group and call it a brigade? Social media is seen as an asymmetrical psychological battlefield. If there's a military side, there are friends and enemies either.
