Control of social media usage (3)

4 June, 2018

Good morning Mr Zulu and thank you for the helpful clarification. However, it could be that the rumours have been quite damaging to any genuine communications. People could be afraid to communicate at all. How can they be reassured that social media are not, in all cases 'the devil's eye' as I have heard said?

I appreciate that here is some global scepticism about Facebook and other social media just now but, on the other hand, WhatsApp can be positively miraculous for good and genuine health communications. It seems a shame if these are stifled through unfortunate rumours?

What do you think is the way forward?

Thank you

Jo
