Internet networking, as with any major movement, is embraced, rejected or simply ignored by great numbers of the population. These Social Media Propaganda posters make a pop culture parody of the war for members on three major websites.

Graphic designer Aaron Wood has designed these images to take the typical appearance of placards by the Allies and the Russians during the World Wars of the 20th century. Such an aesthetic is achieved through the use of simple color fills within minimally detailed pictures accompanied with direct verbal messages. Of the Social Media Propaganda posters, the Twitter bill asks the public to "Be brief!" the Facebook print promotes communal farming and the communist Google+ bill asks that "All must be shared."
