Social Media as a Platform for Self Expression 4 years ago #1425

Has social media as a platform for self expression become a dangerous platform especially after what happend in Mumbai where two girls were arrested on voicing their opinions..

People need to be careful about what they publish on social media. There is no need to control one's Facebook status. However, certain restrictions have been put on online free speech. For example, online free speech does not give the license to defame.

The arrest of the girls manipulates Article 19 of the Constitution, which is Freedom of Expression. Not allowing people to express their views violates Article 19 and goes against constitutional validity

While newspapers and television channels have to register and have their editors responsible under the PRB Act, self-publishing individuals like you and me have to take responsibility for every tweet and Facebook update as well as comment under Section 66A of the IT Act which is very loosely written law. It treats the writer of the post same as murderer..this is not at all acceptable for one of the biggest democracy of the world.

Indian cyber rules are archaic and needs to be changed or amended..

This does not augur well for the brand image of the world's largest democracy. The law is so vague that the writer can be arrested like a murderer. This does not augur well for freedom.

social media if used properly can be extremely useful. good infrmation, news etc can be circulated quickly amongst those who are connected. however, it can also spread bad things like rumors, false information etc. it is thus a good tool but if misused can be dangerous
