SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM ETHICS
Social media has emerged as an indispensable tool for communication and interaction. In addition to its affordability, the feature with which it offers group interactions makes it more appealing. This has significantly motivated laggards (late adopters of technology) to switch to smartphones.
WhatsApp groups being the most interactive instant messaging platform, which has emerged to be more active than all the active SNSs (social networking sites), has numerous advantages. However, to appreciate these advantages in a better way, the institute ought to be mindful of some ethics which are necessary for virtual interactions.
This article highlights on the Group Message Settings (Preferable) and the platform Group Ethics
