Social terrorism - Could Africa's youth be under attack?

The latest 2015 report issued by We Are Social revealed that there are 85 million active social media users in Africa. Take that figure and cross reference it with the United Nations' statistic of 20% of the Africans population being aged between 15 and 24 and boom we have 17 million youths using social media in Africa. If you could target only 1% of that, you would have 170,000 followers and if equally split out, you would have 3,148 followers in each African country.

Five beliefs about strategy execution that are just plain wrong
