U.S. State Department's Social Media War with ISIS

The islamic State has an organized 'information and recruitment' campaign on many forms of socialmedia such as Twitter and Youtube to gather all possible support for their wars in Syria and Iraq.  The U.S. Government is seeking to counter the messaging.  Will the fervent supporters of ISIS or willing recruits even seek out this counter narrative from the U.S. Department of State on the internet ?

Twitter and Youtube are part of the new battle-space. Graphic images sell the new caliphate and soft-core versions are now used by the U.S. government to counter the campaign from ISIS.  The State Department tries ThinkAgainTurnAway. 

What do the 'experts' think about the new media campaign? (video)
