Neither Follow Nor Share - Social Networking - Virtual World

Modern World is the virtual world on the web. There is lot of classified and unclassified information on the web.All Social Networking Sites are spreading their wings and to spread a rumour, gossip and event - no effort is required .Governments all over the world are duty bound to protect their citizens from unwanted, illegal content which can spread haterdness  sex,violence,   or unauthenticated information which can harmful for Society. But can we stop it ?

Answer is big "NO" as the Governments all over the world do not have the Will Power to control Social Media, may it be any form. There seem to be no Law to restrict or discipline the Social Media so that future generations are not misled by content spreading on the web. Every Website, Blog showing any legal or illegal, violent or non-violent, porn videos or tutorial videos have the above social plugins and buttons displayed on their sites.

Tweet this, Like us on Facebook, Follow on Google+, Email this, Share this through hundreds of sharing gadgets like pintrest, stumble upon .But why the websites or blogs ask for Like Us, Follow Us and Share this and put in Social Plugins in such a way that one is prompted to or accidently clicks on Pop-in windows and once the content gets shared it gets multiplied geometrically as such sharing can be activated by audience in the age group 13+ and above.In my opinion we can protect the future generations from ill effects of the virtual world if we collectively follow the under noted guidelines:

Facebook
Facebook and all other Social NetWorking sites must not allow their Social Plugins to be installed on websites, blogs and videos displaying illegal content and content harmful to the Society. Moreover these social networking sites must not permit more than one Profile ID or Fake ID's .Even Google and Yahoo sites must not permit more than one Email ID and that too be also permitted after it gets verified from a genuine source of information (verifiable online) like Passport Number, Voter Card No., Social Security Number, Visa Credit Card Number, Unique ID Number, Permanent Income Tax Account Number, Driving License Number and above all through valid IP Address of the PC/Laptop/Mobile Connection duly verifiable and registered in the name of the Individual who is creating the ID.Now the question is that,we , as a civilized society will like the under privileged also to be a part of modernized developed world. How can be achieve it .The social networking sites or Google and Yahoo like services providing email ID's can ask the New Profile ID seekers to provide a reference of existing verified Email ID to whom email may be sent for verification and after verification only the new Profile ID may be allowed to be created/activated. When a person is asking for a Google/Facebook/Yahoo Profile - I think he or she must be having at least one friend or family member who can vouch for his/her antecedents. 

It is never too late to start a noble idea to protect the future generations from  ill effects of Virtual World and the Governments world over need to show their will power by bringing about changes through legislative measures as CyberCrime and online Impersonation will be biggest challenge in the near future.

Above all - ask one question to yourself - while clicking Like Us, Follow Us, on Facebook, Google Circles, Tweet this, Retweet this, if the site and the author of the article is a verified Google Author and has passed through all the litmus tests to get verified. You may not have any valid reason and you can not track the future personality of the Person or reliability of the website and your liking and following will make the person or website popular among your Google/Yahoo Circles and Facebook friends. Even if they change the content of the website or authored article, your Liking will remain in tact though you may not like the changes made. How can we deal with this situation? First of all the Social Plug ins and buttons when clicked must prompt the visitor for "Reasons for Liking/Following - predefined reasons or Others." and also ask for "Expiry Date or Permanent Liking" of such liking or following as Liking/tastes/followings go on changing over a period of time. All such Social Plugins and buttons must have Expiry Date -I,mean to say that in case the person who initially liked/followed/shared/tweeted an individual's philosophy or a product or a website/video - if that very person does not make any contact with the individual/Product/Website/Video/Place/Service Center - the analytic's and statistics of Number of Likes, Google Followers must get automatically reduced so as to depict the true statistics of Likes/Followers in the current situation. These steps will reduce the incidence of misleading audience i.e. the virtual word. 
                  
Note : This article was written by the author on 06th of November 2012 but and Facebook and Social Networks have started thinking on the same lines as about a month back when the author forgot the password to sign in Facebook account, the Facebook asked to get the email verified through a friend's email. This post is being updated by the author today on 10th of Nov.,2014 as the author is of the considered opinion that later or sooner national governments all over the world will ensure that social networks do not become the rulers on the web and they check national ID's of their users. There is no harm in doing so. Let us make the world to adopt the policy to Speak Truth and Forget so that the world wide web becomes more and more reliable. In my opinion the statistics of liking should be reversed if the person, who liked, does not revisit the article, page or website. Moreover social networks and search engines should also downgrade the Page Rank of the websites who provide Paid Services for buying the "Number of Likes" as I am flooded with mails asking me utilize their services for Paid Up Likes on Google+, Facebook and other social networks for petty amounts say just 50 $s for 10000 facebook likes.
