Facebook prayers and Empathy filters!

Every action has it’s own reaction was the old version. The newest is every action has its own reaction plus a social media over reaction. We have reached a time where solidarity can simply be boil down to a changing of a profile picture through a facebook filter. Moreover we can celebrate  pride over the profile picture as well. Therefore now, the true value of the profile picture is not shelled to identify the physical appearance of the person, but to figure out the moral values and believes of the  person as well. Yes, I agree this is good way at a hand. Human rights , freedom of expression and many else too will go count on this. However the bitter repercussion comes when figuring out the equality of the occasions we depend on them. Facebook launches the ” celebrity pride tool” which puts a rainbow filter over the profile picture that use to show the support to marriage equality. I don’t go further to say some who used this truly had no care for LGBT rights. However I cannot help but to say that most of this was a display and drama. The latest destination of this display was Paris. Why only Paris and not Israel or Syria. Sadly FB didn’t have the app when Sri Lanka was in trouble. FB prayers drama goes around with romantic destinations but not with the true value of humanity.That’s why social media publicize certain events of horror while paying no attention on some equally horrible horrors. I’m pretty sure most of you reading though this also might have be a part of it.

 If then lets pray that we don’t filter our empathy just as we seem to be filtering our profile pictures.

Spread the love!
