Unprofessional social media journalism can ruin our society.
Have many of us who are into social media started considering ourselves as journalists? Nothing wrong, but don't you think we need to be responsible for what we are posting or sharing therein? Don't we need to be sensitive to social issues and think twice before sharing a post or a message? Don't we need to be aware about the impact the sharing of a wrong message can create? Join this discussion and come out with your views.
It has been a sickening trend in India. There has to be some sense of shame for those who have been indulging in such practices. People fail to understand as to why photos and videos of the victims, injured persons, accidental dead bodies, politician's and any other objectionable items are meant to remain neutral instead of making it viral by sharing those senseless clicks, sending it to your contacts and posting it to social medias Whats App, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter reflects our stupidity.
In many cases, images or videos circulated are very disturbing and it is indeed a wrong act. The victims and their family deserve privacy and respect and this can be done by abstaining ourselves from clicking while they are in their worst situation.
What you click, what you post and what you send to your contacts is at your discretion but what you click and what you send must be well scrutinized using your good sense. Please click, post and share for a good cause.
