The North Korean propaganda website "Uriminzokkiri" on Monday joined the global craze for social networking sites by adding Twitter and Facebook tags.
That makes it even easier for North Korean propaganda to reach South Korea unfiltered, since content can now be shared with the click of a mouse. The "share" function is limited to posts denouncing South Korea.
North Korean websites like Uriminzokkiri are blocked in South Korea but can easily be accessed overseas, and can then be shared by overseas Koreans to reach South Korean users.
Ryu Dong-ryeol of the Police Science Institute, said, "The North's propaganda tactics are developing fast in line with the changing media environment."
