PARIS: Researchers say Daesh (ISIS) supporters have found an ephemeral platform to share propaganda: Using Instagram's "stories" feature, which causes posts to disappear in 24 hours.A recent analysis found the networks of people inspired by the group remain strong elsewhere.The software analysis identified more than 50,000 accounts linked to Daesh supporters posting Instagram stories, according to Andrea Stroppa, who is part of the software research group called Ghost Data. Instagram is owned by Facebook, which came under pressure to close accounts linked to Daesh supporters after governments said it was being used as a propaganda and recruitment tool.
