In this article about the IS radio station in Afghanistan, the author quotes from a dispatch by AAN’s Borhan Osman:

IS “has put far greater effort into its media activities than would normally be expected from a nascent group of its size”, said the Afghanistan Analysts Network in a reportlast month that examined its reach on social and traditional media, as well as the content. The militants are “already outmatching” the Taliban [on this], noted AAN.
