Nowadays Social Media has become an explicit platform to express our views, to raise an issue and shaping public opinion. It has become an integral part of everyone’s lives, people give their opinions on various political & social issues.
Social media provides us with the freedom of speech, but nowadays it’s no longer being used for communication purposes only, mainly it’s being used for spreading rumours, insulting persons, creating chaos and many other inappropriate activities that might have very bad consequences like communal riots.
As different people express their views on social platforms, some people may blindly agree on something without knowing the actual facts and some even go to the extent of personal attacking others because they don’t agree with their opinions. Many people use social media as a tool for trolling each other on the basis of their religion, caste and skin.
Many times, people used to put the silly issues on social media, just because they want people to react on that particular issue. There’s no significance of doing this. Such insignificant and unwanted posts cause a huge chaos among people.
Nowadays cyber crimes are being committed so frequently like trafficking in child pornography and intellectual property, stealing identities or violating privacy etc. Even for minor events like school fights, cyberbullying is being used. Cyber frauds used to blackmail people by putting their personal content at stake.
Social media has become a place for verbal diarrhoea, though it does have lots of positive results but it is being misused by the people.
