The State Department runs its social media operation like a shady online herbal supplement dealer. From 2011-2013, the State Department spent $630,000 on a ham-fisted social media ad campaign to increase its Facebook fans, according to a new Inspector General.
It worked, technically, increasing the number of likes on State Department pages from 100,000 to 2 million, according to Gawker.
