Who could have even imagined some years ago that there would be a force called the social media ? . But who can stop the wheels of change ? In the beginning was DD , then came a few channels and now we are flooded with various apps that are like a flood which is not going to stop – Ali Peter John
This Social Media has its critics and it’s followers , but one thing is sure and that is the fact that this giant force is going to play a very important role in the country and in every aspect and field of life .
I decided to talk to some men and women whose opinions and voices matter , and here is what they had to say ….
I really got aware of the social media only when I was at my farm for more then two years and besides my farming , I only could watch TV and it was on TV that I found social media and I have met stopped watching the shows on social media .
It is a very positive force which can be used for better or for worse . I have a great time interacting with my fans and admirers on Facebook and I post details about all the work that keeps me busy at my farm and the response I get from my admirers gives me one big boost to work harder both in my film career and my farming career. I only hope people don’t use social media as a way of promoting hatred among people .
Like it or not , social media has become a way of life for us . It may have its advantages and disadvantages , but it is a reality we will have to accept . I have been a victim of social media , but I have and my family has learnt to take it in our stride .
There is nothing that can be changed about this growing phenomenon so let’s make the best of it . My only complaint is about the way lies and abusive language is used in the debates .
Will the social media help in enlightening the people ? I don’t see any signs of it now , but why should I or any one give up hope ?
There is so much of sound and fury on the social media which makes very little sense . There will have to be some sense and balance in the way this social media is used.
I see the coming assembly elections as a mela , jhamela and lots of deewanapan during the next few months . I hope I don’t have to shout and say ” khamosh”
Frankly , I don’t even watch the regular TV shows , so there is no question of my talking about social media . Even otherwise , I hate noise of any kind and run away to my hills then there is noise that I cannot bear .let me know what this whole hullabaloo about this social media is when I come down from the hills
I take change very seriously because as a filmmaker and an educationist , I know that no progress can be made without change .
Social media is a victory for acknowledging , but I hope it can also be a victory for enlightenment and entertainment .
I hope to see this media take rapid strides and does some good to the film industry . Right now , the content on social media is more dependent on massala than the development of the mind .
This thinking will have to change and I see the coming elections as a chance for social media to take the positive steps it should and must take.
I had in my own way predicted this phenomenon and now my prediction has come true . I now predict that a day will come when people will watch films and shows on social media on their wrist watches . Social media is some one’s food and someone’s poison , take it or leave it
Mere liye toh social media bahut kaam ki cheez hai. Main sochta hoon ki agar social media nahi hota inn kaale dino mein, toh mai kya karta . Ye waqt beetaane ka sabse accha tohfa hai
Social media shows life and I only hope that they don’t lie about life
I felt that social media could be one big step for entertainment , but it is only being used to incite people about religion and other sensitive issues . I know there can be no clamping down on what they show on social media , but as a thinking man , I feel it is going in all the wrong direction and may grow wild during the coming elections . Someone has to control this media in some sensible way , or the consequences cannot be good
