Bullies – they are everywhere. They never contribute a lot of good to the society and, most especially, the person they are targeting as well. Not putting a proper context on a single post can lead to people’s misunderstanding; thus, igniting harmful judgments. This still happens even if the post was of good intent.
 
Last week, a news report came out of a man who started a hate campaign against a Kerala student who was selling fish to make ends meet. Noorudeen Sheikh initially took photos of Hanan Hamid selling fish after her classes in college. He, then, broadcasted through Facebook live that Hamid is a fake after seeing her with superstar Mohanlal. Hamid said that she was working as a junior artiste in a film (aside from selling fish) to help pay medical bills for her ailing mother.
 
Sheikh’s accusations ignited negative comments about Hamid. They believed in the presumption that she was pretentious to get sympathy. Worse, they said all those without knowing the truth. Their judgments were based solely on Sheikh’s account.
 
This issue could have been avoided. The intervention of the police and the government helped a lot in minimizing harm towards Hamid. If not, she could have been attacked further. But why do we need to go through this measures? How damaging is social media bullying?

How do you stand out in the internet when it’s full of clutter? Do you think your online identity will be just a disposable waste? Do you think it would be easily overlooked like many others?

Have you reached that point where social media is just too much for you?
 
We believe everyone has or have been or will eventually go through this phase. With millions and billions of people online (plus the dummy or bot accounts), social media is bombarded with content. No amount of filters would work. However you find a way to avoid people or content, it will somehow find its way into your timeline.
 
Plus, (and let’s admit it) there’s a lot of negativity online, too. Going through your feed is just one stressful task. You need to de-stress. Or better yet, detoxify.
 
If you’re not sure how to do it, we’ll give you a bit of a guide to follow.
 

 

The past week must have been a busy week in the Facebook HQ. After all, any news on data and privacy breach on the biggest social media platform is a huge blow. With billions of users and their respective data, a single entity to get hold of it is like enjoying an all-you-can-eat-buffet for free.
 
Just to give you a background, Cambridge Analytica and a certain Aleksandr Kogan used an app to gather millions of data from users in 2013. Two years after, their app brought attention to Facebook and the social media giant asked Kogan and Cambridge Analytica a certification that all the data were already deleted.
 
Fast forward to 2018, it seems like the data were not deleted after all. Even worse, the data were sold. To what intents and purposes, we don’t really know for sure. Even Facebook can’t trace all that.
 
In a public apology posted by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, he mentioned the series of events that led to this breach. He also mentioned that they’ll go over through the rest of the apps, check how much user data they’re getting, and what they could do to improve on this especially with data issues at hand.
 

 

In the age when social media are at its peak, it has reached the point where people start to question: does this need government regulation?
 
Let’s admit it. Social media has become a powerful force in shaping and molding the society.
 
Recent studies have focused on it and tried to uncover the mystery that it holds over its influence on its users and audiences.
 
If we recall, the initial purpose of social media was simply to bring people together. We’ve seen stories on how social media helped reconcile families and reunite friends. Even lost pets got found with the help of social media.
 
But as years rolled, social media became a ‘tool’. It went out of being just ‘social’. It has grown to be an economic standpoint (ads, revenues, marketing, etc.), a gauge of moral compass (based on what you post), a psychological and emotional outlet, and a political tool to put forward an ideology.
 
The power of social media has grown vastly that users have gone out of control. We’ll discuss further below some ‘way out of line’ scenarios on social media.
 
And with these, is government regulation the answer? Or is there a chance that we can minimize these without government control?
