The most important thing we could do is share our stories, ideas, or thoughts with you by liking, following, or subscribing to your social media?

i doubt this only happening on a government level - public opinions on weapons, climate change, cannabis, fracking, gene-manipulated monocultural food might be influenced in one or even both directions. as long there is someone with money or power that has an interest on a public opinion i seriously doubt that he isn't using social media to try to control the masses.

There are methods to detect this kind of organized trolling. Investigative journalism should make more effort to expose and publicly shame the culprits.
It is more necessary than ever to properly fact-check your information (peer reviewed scientific journals) and be skeptical. BUT be careful not to revert to the shill-card when your opinion is questioned online.

Astroturf-paranoia is a perfect tool to reinforce irrational beliefs, because it makes it easy to dismiss every information that conflicts with your opinion.

That is so not true, governments don't do something like that. Don't believe this video. We would never do such a thing

He's working for the U.S. government and trying to make us paranoid and to make the Internet a no go zone.
A tinfoil hat while browsing the net is more than enough to keep you safe. (not against the lizard people though)
For extra protection please rub some lubrication on your head before wearing the tinfoil hat, it will form a extra protective barrier.
And for those who don't believe me; try it for yourself, it's totally a matrix kind of thing going on.
You can thank me later.

I don't seem to bother trolls, and when they ridicule my opinion, I even try harder to get the message trough.

#6 It could be, someone speaking with the suburbs on the backround wearing a hoodie, making it look like he is someone who lives there, to make it someone with a reliable opinion, talking bad about Russian trolls.

But propoganda happens that much we seem to question real and truhtfull people.

Video trolled me at 1:01 Here's
Trolling is a big deal at facebook, have to deal with dozens a month :( They seldom have many friends and some other things you must be aware of before adding them to groups etc. How can a single person be involved in 100 groups and still have a healthy life outside facebook?

Plenty of negative comments on SNOTR... (especially when you mention God Jesus or America.) Never Islam Muslim criticize america or sux2bu or when you use the F word
