Another major point to be considered is that social media is open to feedback and different point of view of different people somehow helps one to be ready for the clash in opinions.”
While Dr Sanjay Mohan Johri stated: “With the help of public relations and advertising we are not only helping students of public relations to adapt the change but also preparing them to walk hand in hand with the digital era.”
Advising all the people associated with public relations to work on news stories that are helpful for layman, Sudhir Mishra stated: “All those who read news on social media and other sites should first cross-check the source and authentication of the news. Fake news is somehow becoming a trend on social media so before believing any news everyone should cross-check the reality and added thay even today newspaper is considered to the most authentic source of news.”
U Srinivasan said: “After the much-increased usage of social media the corporate companies need to be on alert because social media is a platform that is open for all to express their point of view. Even though people have less relevant knowledge about that particular sector they are still writing a lot on social media but when it comes to news websites then it is important to know the relevance of the content before publishing is spreading it further.”
