You must have thought about how the times have changed since your childhood. That one thing which has made all the difference is interent. The ease with which You and I can access anything we wish to know on the go still amazes me sometimes. Connectivity has become so simple that with all the mobile phones and the apps in it. One which tops all of them, at least it India is Whatsapp.
Other than chatting with family and friends, Whatsapp is also used for propagating news. Real or fake does not matter. We receive dozens of messages everyday. Self proclaimed political pundits, journalists breaks the news with so much pride that most of us don’t even bother checking the facts once. We share it further if we agree with it and do not share if our opinion doesn’t match.
Being ignorant from the fact that whether the content we are receiving and sharing is real or not has brought shame to many people. Celebrity, most of them. Recently a Pakistani cricket legend Imran Khan who is also a PM contestant shared some pictures on twitter and got brutally trolled. After which he took the tweet down.
Here’s a picture of his deleted tweet –
Some replied to the tweet saying –
This is not the first instance when this has happened. Aashique-2 actress Shraddha Kapoor with all the good intentions and patriotism posted this picture on twitter –
They freeze to make sure that we are warm. They protect to make sure that we feel safe. Can never thank you Jawaans enough. pic.twitter.com/z1Df4sw0dA

The lack of awareness ridiculed herself, she was corrected and trolled by the twitterattis. As this picture is not of Indian army. This is picture of Russian army while they were training.
Now you know what to do before you share anything on social networking sites.
Just Google It!
