The Curtain of Social Media and Privacy
In an age where people's privacy can be reached more easily than ever before, protecting privacy becomes even more important.
It is obvious that privacy consciousness is important in every period of human history. Every religion gives advice to its members that emphasize the value of privacy. Therefore, privacy is a concept specific to humanity, not just to Islam. However, the value that Islam gives to privacy and its rules on this issue are more uniform and more original than other religions. As a matter of fact, Islam fulfills the duty of being a barrier against this abrasion in today's time when the awareness of privacy is eroded. This situation also places a heavier responsibility on Muslims regarding privacy. However, this responsibility is as valuable and precious as it is heavy.
One of the biggest hits of the modern era to humanity is the existence of platforms that damage privacy. By the easy access of technology to the human privacy; If people do not pay attention, they can easily dominate people. Thus, technology keeps people under control, not human technology, and over time, people can do what they want. Man loses his personality over time and becomes a puppet. Although it is obvious that puppets are not puppets, it becomes impossible for puppets to know that they are not puppets. Facebook, Twitter, Tik Tok and İnstagram are the leading social platforms that ruthlessly and destroy the human soul.
Facebook is one of the oldest social platforms. The fact that Mesenger left our lives in time accelerated the birth of Facebook and made it easier to enter our lives. However, this new birth has paved the way for many personalities to be personified over time. Facebook, which embraced the mother and father with joy similar to the joy of the parents who took their children into their arms at the first moment of birth, became quite monstrous and became the nightmare of the people whom they took shelter in their births. Families started to share their photos over time and even did not pay attention to whether these photos exceeded the privacy line. They presented the photographs of his wife and son with their own hands to other people and they were proud of it. This situation, which is a psychological symptom of illness, has played a role in paving the way for the society in terms of sociology.
Twitter, which is accepted as a more serious platform compared to Facebook, can humiliate people as much as Facebook does when it is not used correctly. The lower the number of characters does not mean that the deficient ones will be lower. The weight of a word or the meaning of a word; it reveals the character of the person who speaks the word, the person who uses that word. Every word has a story, every word has a weight on the scale. It can be shown as examples of Twitter's opening the veil of privacy, such as the drooling of saliva that people cannot spill out in normal life, attacking the interlocutor with abusive expressions, using expressions that offend the family life of the headman. The bird doesn't always crow well! Because the crow is also a bird!
