Social media has been both a boon and a bane. On one hand, it has democratised information, connected billions of people, allowed people to create awareness on current issues, allowed government and agencies to reach out to the people and even made education more accessible.
However, there is also a flip side. Social media has allowed tawdry characters to create incognito accounts to troll and incite. It has also opened the door for hackers, fraudsters and scammers to cheat people.
