So You Have Been Publicly Shamed -Jon Ronson

After a long time, I returned back as a Lead Reviewer on Talking of Books on Dubai Eye 103.8FM

I discussed a book about public shaming happening in today’s age on social media, specifically twitter. The book is written by Jon Ronson, a British journalist. He interviewed people who faced the consequences of their twitter posts.

People need to think before they post anything. Those 140 words on Twitter, can change someones life. It may ruin your world. A simple statement from you point of view or a joke can be interpreted in a way you never imagined.

Social media is becoming a parallel justice system. Everyone thinks that they have a right to judge others. Being anonymous is more over give us right to express ourselves without giving it a second thought.
