[Few thoughts on the infamous 'Squad'!]
Closed group where people are added after scrutinizing the profile.
They are directed to report selected pages/posts/videos that group admins do not like no matter if they show actual facts (e.g. videos showing dhruv's lies)
Interesting to note, they claim to criticize those in power but this group hardly shares anything against AAP, a party in power with absolute majority.
This group is filled with hate posts against current central government sometimes even with manipulated data as true facts
Most of these hashtags are made for plain hate mongering against Central govt. Or state govt. ONLY WHERE BJP is ruling party
Mostly because a large chunk of this group is young and impressionable youth and they keep consuming this hate mongering posts, thanks to social media algorithms
When large group of people are directed to report specific posts, it goes against the very ethos of social media.
More importantly, they are made to feel as if they are..
Their blind trust in one person and collective hatred towards an ideology is just being amplified in the echo-chamber of this group.
This very thing is very undemocratic and promotes the idea of mob mentality. Again, very lethal for society.
This mob mentality is being amplified in this echo chamber and is a threat which not many people are able to see.
