Social media is a democratic medium, but the irony of Indian democracy is become also irony for Social Media. Everyone has access to this, but it revolves around powerful people. As soon as a celebrity says something, it becomes an important message for the whole country. His support or opposition begins.
A few years ago, when the social media was spreading in the country, it seemed as if a big platform of dialogue was taking shape. Now all of them will get an opportunity to make their point in a big circle, who has been feeling them isolated. This will reduce the distance in society. If people connect with each other then a new socialism will arise. This will create a public opinion, which will guide the policy-makers and ruling classes. It seemed like a few days. But gradually it was captured by powerful people.
Social media is a democratic medium, but the irony of Indian democracy is also irony. Everyone has access to this, but it revolves around powerful people. As soon as a celebrity says something, it becomes an important message for the whole country. His support or opposition begins. I.e. agenda determines a singer or a cricketer. The rest of the people continue to revolve around it. If a star gives a statement on the nation, it is considered a big comment on the nation and it continues to grow like an important discussion.
Nobody is asking those historians and sociologists who are working hard on national and other issues by working hard on day and night. If they give their views, then rarely hear them. But if an actor speaks something about the country, then his statement of a line is shadowed like a dialect. An actor also has the right to give opinions on the nation, society or any other issue, but no person’s matter should be considered as important because of his status, how it can be justified.
The second difficulty of the social media is that it has stopped the way of serious study and well-thought-out ideas. The comment made in a passion or emotional appeal is being presented on the same basis as the age truth. Large conclusions are being taken out in a few lines only. The urge for a healthy debate has ended in the impatient manner of deciding to settle everything and decide immediately. Now the importance of Moods and Performance has become more important than knowledge and thought. This quick discussion on social media has led to writing, studying and contemplating, it must be seriously considered.
It is up to us to decide how we view social media and how we allow social networking to either benefit or harm our lives. It is imperative to remember that the genuine human experience of being able to communicate in person, network in person and form relationships with others outweighs social media. It is also important to remember that the number of likes or shares you receive does not define who you are or your self-worth.
