Just read a TNP article (you can click it)
about a Malaysian-born blogger, Cheryl Seow, posted her thoughts about Singaporeans in her blog 3 years ago and till now, netizens are still attacking her, even though she has apologized.
(Extract from article)
Here's my thought:
I'm also a blogger and as an individual, I sometimes do rant on social media platforms too.
Of course not anything controversial but more related to my relationship and personal thoughts.
I believe the new age technology and media world have affected all of us in some ways.
We are definitely more technically affected nowadays e.g. long distance relationship used to be just writing letters and it takes ages to reach the other party. Slowly, there's email - where people can update each other through emails, and chat software such as IRC - where people can get to know each other in the 'Cyber Space' and chat whenever they want to. Now, we have Skype, face-time and all sorts of communication platforms like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to update each other.
It gives us a sense of closeness just like we know what's going on with the other parties' life.
However nowadays, online is equal to public, which means whatever you say online are literally shown to the 'public' and that can go viral internationally.
And that's why I agree with this quote:
What do you think?
