One of the reason why I thought that I will take up blogging was the fact that I was about to erupt with so many thoughts. But the sad part is that people often erupt in social media,express there opinions ,personal thoughts ,likes ,dislikes . What that causes is the failure of the very purpose of social media.The very platform that was being made to join people and make them collaborative becomes a disruptive platform.
Now for example dislike and difference in opinion among the supporters of two political parties,difference of communal ideas,difference in like of movies ,difference in two fan clubs,difference in terms of casteist reservations are the things that have occupied today’s social media. For example twitter,facebook was flooded with the hate messages when Aamir Khan expressed some opinion on intolerance in country.
But we often forget that this media platform which is an engineering marvel of its own was being created to connect but today by such trends ; distance amongst friends are increasing. Two friends who earlier had there political agenda confined to themselves are now expressing in facebook publicly and the result is with these practise being followed constantly; at some instant both of them realise that they differ a lot in there ideas and hence need not to be friends. But we often forget that difference in opinion is a important part of any ecosystem and this rift would have never happened ten years back when we where cautious enough to hold our thoughts to ourselves.
Expressing grief together, expressing happiness together,sharing lovely moments of life together are the things which we need today. At the time when the entire world is taking the toll due to terrorism,starvation and global climate changes! petty issues or arguements over AAP,BJP ,caste,intolerance,conversion,brain drain is something which is painful and too me is not the motive or the intent by which Zuckerberg made this facebook.
Wats the use of any technology if that is disruptive in bad way rather than being collaborative.
I hope that atleast my friends who are techies and know how much effort is needed in building such giant platforms are conscious enough to not indulge in such things in future.
If you really want to express I think there are plenty of platforms to express and blogging and having your own website is one such.
Thanks all,Have a great day ahead,Stay happy,Stay Fit 🙂
