The adverse effects of globalization on societies with limited sovereignty in the system and the reactions to this condition are two of the most critical problems of the 21st century. The fact that these reactions are delivered through new media devices which have a wider impact area and therefore harder to control than conventional media devices has introduced a new dimension to the problem. This study aims to reveal the methods regarding the ways in which DAESH, which benefits from the opportunities of globalization, uses new media for propaganda purposes. The study aims to show the relationship between the use of new media and the influence gained by DAESH within a short period. The results of the use of new media devices by a terrorist organization that contributes to the globalization of communication have been evaluated in the context of DAESH.
