  Abstract social media is used for recruitment and radicalization of susceptible target groups. Counter narratives are trying to disclose the illusion created by radical and extremist groups through a purposive and educational counter statement, and to initiate a rethinking in the affected individuals via thought-provoking impulses and advice. This study investigates counter narrative campaigns in their fight and prevention against terrorism with regard to content and success criteria based on posts in social media. Posts with strong emotions and a personal reference to affected individuals achieved the highest impact and most reactions from the target group. Furthermore, our results illustrate that counter narratives can be an efficient method to fight terrorism and to prevent target groups from a potential radicalization, while the different dynamics and aims of counter narratives and social media interfere with each other.
