Platforms described as ‘means of divergence’
KUWAIT CITY, Nov 26: A professor of digital media and journalism at Kuwait University, Dr. Fatima Al-Salem, who not too long ago assumed the place of director of the “KUNA” company, throughout one of the classes of the Arab Media Forum in Dubai in 2015, on “Means of Social Divergence”, the place she mentioned the negative effects of reviewed the excessive use of these platforms and, via a random pattern of 800 individuals, concluded that Kuwait’s excessive preoccupation with social media has led to a “new type of social isolation,” particularly amongst these behind pseudonyms conceal.
This digital world by which these individuals talk with others, she stated, “they look for sensitive social issues or taboos that they cannot find in their ordinary lives,” and take them to “unrealistic virtual councils, in which they are stripped of the true expression of their feelings.” Several Kuwaitis years ago turned social media platforms, especially Twitter, which they love, into a platform for resentment and a “battlefield” whose equipment is slander, ridicule and the spread of rumors and fake news, in which “digital flies” .buzz combating with one another.
This matter may very well be seen with the bare eye, as evidenced by research by specialists who urged that it’s applicable to explain the platforms, on this case, as “means of divergence”, fairly than areas for communication, schooling, reflection and leisure, organized by the Academy and professor of media at Kuwait University, dr. Fatima Al-Salem, was picked up in a scientific research, by which she referred to as the communication networks “means of social divergence”.
Anyone who follows the conversations of most Kuwaitis on Twitter, regardless of their subject, will shortly see how the dialogue turns into insults, mockery, private accusations, slander, prejudice, slander and way more. And whoever tries to tweet there, who just isn’t fascinated by polemics and consuming the flesh of dwelling individuals, can be stunned by surprising and provocative reactions, explanations that didn’t happen to him, and the insufferable weight of his phrases.
While recognizing the significance of communication networks as a further enviornment for areas of expression in society, and that they mirror a sort of impulse for public opinion that interacts with occasions, even when not but sufficiently mature, the phrase “invasion of fools” generally appears appropriate. Isn’t this what we show via the various hashtags to make a “trend” of, who writes in his house who desires, what he desires, and it’s unfold and celebrated, till we’re virtually satisfied that it’s a appropriate opinion represents the place we must always cease.
