10 Persuasive Social Media Propaganda Posters

Work less, tweet more! Do your part, Like it on Facebook. Even if social media propaganda posters existed today, we wouldn’t need them — they’re already etched into our heads. We habitually share thoughts and images on social networks without being asked to; sometimes, excessively. However, I reckon these posters will be useful in some cases.

Designed by Aaron Wood from Massachusetts, United States, these social media propaganda posters get the job done. And you can buy them as 11 x 14 inch prints! They cost around $11-12 and ship worldwide. Visit Aaron’s store on Etsy to take a closer look at these posters.

    I know this artist personally. The commenters on this seem to be too focused on how offensive they think these posters are. I think the point here is the aggressive way these social media sites like to promote themselves is comparable to the aggressive propaganda campaigns during wartime.

    Additionally, it has been a LONG time since those wars. I think it’s ok to make light of these things a little bit. After all, we’re making fun of propaganda here, not the struggles and horrors endured by soldiers or people during wartime.

    I personally would buy these if I had the money.

      I’m old enough to remember my parents direct involvement in WWll. I agree with Brian – what’s the problem with this? It is supposed to be satire, humor not treading on some sacred ground. We live in an age where people get offended too easily.
      Incidentally, my people have fought and died in every war in which the US has been involved.
      I think it is creative and unique. Good work.

    I like the cat video’s the most. I dont know why but it does seem that everybody on the internet is adicted to cat videos XD

    So creative , nice and funny .

  • Douglas G

    I think that there is a lot of cultural and political division in the world, and there are wars and talk of war every day. I don’t think the posters are very appropriate for the topic of social media, even though social media is used as a tool for propaganda in many senses of the word.

    I would agree with the other posters that these leave me with a bad taste in my mouth and wondering why they are being featured on a respectable website like MUO.

    I will still be visiting your site, but hope that I don’t see much more like this here or I may reconsider.

  • Mike Munoz

    I don’t know why but these just make me feel.. Uncomfortable. Like when someone makes fun of something that just isn’t funny.

    • Jackson Chung

      You reckon we went too far by featuring them?

    • Thomas MacEntee

      I do Jackson but I wouldn’t do a “take down” – as a blogger I never take down one of my posts but I try to build on any energy – even negative – and turn it into a lesson learned. Perhaps there’s just a disconnect with the younger generation as to what these posters meant in their time period. I’m a 50 year old and considered a “young genealogist” too young to remember the original posters, but I was taught what these posters were all about and why they existed.

    • Jackson Chung

      Thanks, Thomas. There’s definitely a generational and cultural gap here. I realise that the issue of war shouldn’t be taken lightly. I hugely respect veterans and have empathise with them.
