Gossip and hate diffuse in social media sites

Gossip and hate diffuse in social media sites


Facebook has become a gossip book! Twitter a rumor place. Hate ideology grows astronomical. The nebulous character of social networking sites spread hearsay unchecked. Young people easily accept what is spreading out in platforms as true. They are forgetting the expanding rumor culture in social media sites. People easily get to believe in what is multiplying and becoming popular about so and so in platforms. They do not check for sources, credibility and authenticity of information diffusing. See, my fringe thoughts on gossip culture in social media, Merinews by Biju P R.
