We face a debate about social media and our right to be free. Well, all repressive measures clamped by any political system ) on social media can’t be explained or much less justified. When a voice is silenced, a choice is born.
You choose alternative means to make yourself heard. When other physical means of resistance are being cracked down on, technology comes in handy. And that is where we come face to face with our extended family Facebook.
Facebook literally changed the face of the world by piecing people together. It makes us free to exchange ideas, to know and to read each other’s minds. This all contributes to the health of a society. Through it we participate, we protest, we demand, we resist. It grants us what we were dying for. Freedom unlimited. So far so good. The trouble erupts when the same platform is used to spread hate, to kill those virtually whom you don’t want to see live actually, to create public disorder for setting your own lands in order.
That makes Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook founder rue the day, he gave us this incredible mode of idea sharing. And the trouble deepens when we slip in disguised. We become fakes there by turning Facebook into a “Fakebook“. We hide behind pseudonyms and shoot our malice at anyone and anything we want to, and the irony is we get away with it.
We want to throw, we don’t want to be spotted. We kick you in the face, but we don’t show our face. That is not courage, that is hypocrisy at its cheapest, lowest. That is not freedom, that is stink we spread in the name of freedom. And if that is the freedom of expression which defines our relationship with social media, I cast my vote against that freedom.

Were you surprised that U.K. residents are the highest users of mobile data? Let us know in comments below…
