Be a responsible citizen!

This is the first major national crisis that has happened since the proliferation of social networking platforms in this country. I find it sad that people are circulating rumours without confirmation as well as gory pictures that have nothing to do with the current crisis. This is not to belittle the gravity of such incidences but you have to ask yourself some simple questions when spreading any news item. Is it in the interest of the public and can I influence positive change by sharing or spreading such news? If you cannot answer yes to these two questions, please keep the news to yourself or share it with only those that you know can use it responsibly.

The more tension you generate, the more risk you create for you and your loved ones, think about that before you post or share!
