These days whenever my phone beeps ad shows that there is a facebook or whatsapp notification more than often I get disgusted. If you are surprised why then I will tell you the reason , in short, from being funny and Amusing social networking has become opinionated, mediocre, agenda centric, propagandas and religiously profane. If you analyze the bulk of the posts generated on the social networking these days you may feel either of two feelings. A war being fought, with childish demeanor or a peace being brought with a malicious notion. To go further even political campaigns are launched on facebook. But let’s not get too serious here, even when these days there is a deliberate attempt on social media to make everything too serious. We are talking social media right, so let’s talk with some spunk!
Let’s start with category of messages. First will be religiously provoking. As hilarious example, write om namah shivaya, or jai mata di or jai bajrang bali or amen or allah or wahe guru or amen god or jesus crist and so on. These messages usually end with a threatening of outcast and several years of bad luck if you not write as said above. For the first part of that line, myself being a Hindu feels insulted as my gods should not be treated in such cheap way .For the latter part every other religion also should get there deserving respect. The point I am trying to draw is that everyone who believes in their religion should get furious on this type of idiotic depiction of their religious beliefs. First they present gods as commodities online, then try branding of them in special categories and then they are scrutinizing the authenticity of our beliefs based on how much we abide with them. These types of messages are real heresy.
The second category is drawing sympathy. We usually see messages that have various pictures of people suffering from illness or have cured some illness. These messages also follow with a threat of suffering from bad luck. By all standards this is the most disgusting form of messages i.e, selling someone’s misery for own benefit. These messages also come in another way that some has won over there disease and is asking for likes. That can be accepted but what I don’t understand that how same people can get cured from same disease after every 3 to 6 months. .
The third category is patriotically provoking. When on a message they are asking to write jai hind or bharat mata ki jai that’s okk. But following message of “jisne desh ka namak khaya ho” or “jo deshbhakt ho” is trying to question our loyalty towards nation based on the judgment of the morons who sent the message. Moreover I don’t want to say much about this one as few months earlier the whole country was stormed on the issue of “Bharat mata ki Jay”. Only want to say that my patriotism is my right and my personal way of saluting my motherland and no one should or can dictate that In what way I should spell it.
The fourth category is making groups to propagate a particular notion or to discard a particular notion. In this special category you find the messages like, “Kya modi aazadi ke bad ke sabse acche pm hai” or “Rahul ya Modi” or “Congress or BJP” or “JDU, Congress or BJP” or “ government ko aap kam ke kitne number denge” and so on. The beauty of this messages are that they are so idiotic in their own sense that I really wonder who sends them. But these messages are directed to judge the opinion of the masses or to fabricate the opinion of the masses. This category also contains messages explaining a political parties achievement and how this party is the best by all means!
I am ending the previous sentence with an exclamation because I can’t draw a smiley or lolllzzzz here like social networks. Many times the group who makes the message viral gets very enraged when someone questions his liking. In another way these messages are directed to make groups of their belief and corner everyone else. Recently a new edition is added to these messages which explain how reservation is justified or unjustified for every class. What intrigues me is that every class plays a victim when talking about this.
Once a government official was explaining, how these messages which look mere idiotic are part of a bigger conspiracy. According to him there are various groups who are sending these messages 24×7 just to judge and predict that which type of messages can provoke the sentiments of the people and if needed how a rumor could be sold as a truth through social networks.
Apart from these there are various other stupidity catered on the social networks these days but I am not mentioning them as they are free from agendas and even being idiotic are harmless both from personal and social point of view. But the messages I am mentioning in previous paragraphs are really targeted social vibes which spread like infection. Moreover ease of access has made social networks available to everyone, including the jackasses who are clueless what they are doing online and the morons who can manipulate them just by messages. What I am referring in above line need not be explained as anyone reading this will get the essence and for the people who doesn’t, well it’s no use trying. They will either be confused or judgmental even after explaining.
