Everybody has a right to express themselves, and everybody has a right to speak their mind out on social media.

Some people leave positive comments, and some people leave mean and harsh comments.

People sometimes forget that social media is the first platform people or organizations use to check about personal and professional presence.

People also forget, that what they leave on social media stays there forever.

It says a lot about a person’s character, language, tone used, social network, and presence – it simply represents you.

Yap! I sometimes get offended by the comments people leave under the pretext of freedom of expression during live shows, especially when a matter is addressed to the nation.  ( for eg the comments that come up during the  NST Online)

It triggers others and derails unwanted conversations and arguments.

I am sure you have seen or read some unwanted comments, and you wonder WHY!

We have a choice not to follow others.

We can choose to treat everyone with politeness and kindness, not because they are nice, but because YOU are.
