With the development of science and technology and the advent of the information age, more and more people are exposed to the Internet. According to the 41st "Statistical Report on the Development of the Internet in China" issued by the China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) in Beijing, as of 2017 In December, the number of Internet users in my country reached 772 million, and the penetration rate reached 55.8%, which was 4.1 percentage points higher than the global average (51.7%) and 9.1 percentage points higher than the Asian average (46.7%). More and more people use the Internet and use various online social tools, which has brought us into the era of "self-media". Some people say that we are getting closer and closer to the truth in the “self-media” era. Is this really the case?
It is undeniable that in the era of "self-media", everyone has a "microphone", which allows us to enter a seemingly more "democratic" society, where everyone can "scream when the road is not peaceful", and many things will come to you. The whereabouts are clearer and clearer, and we have more channels to understand the truth. However, there is more information, but the quality is not necessarily high. Some information may be manipulated by someone who is deliberately exposed to our field of vision. During the investigation of child abuse incidents in Beijing Red, Yellow and Blue Kindergartens in 2017, false information that some people fabricated "tiger group" members collectively molested children was spread on WeChat groups, causing the incident to deviate from the truth and causing panic in the society. In the end, the rumors will be dealt with by law in accordance with the law. Should the public as rumors also reflect on their actions? In such an era when everyone is a "self-media", shouldn't we take care of the "microphone" in our hands? Let the truth not deviate.
To manage the "microphone" in your hand, you need to know the law and abide by the law. The Internet is not a place outside the law, and there is always a corresponding price to be paid for arbitrarily. Do you still remember the headline party article that "a family of thirty-four people copied and cut" a few years ago? The title exaggerated the atmosphere of horror, and the content of the article always described how ferocious the scene was. Many people were afraid to look at the photos afterwards. After seeing it boldly, they discovered that the "34 members of a family" turned out to be a group of rats. The author thought it was just a joke, but he was detained for ten days. In recent years, laws and regulations related to the Internet have been continuously improved, and the state and local governments have been continuously strengthening network management. More and more people have paid the price for non-compliance with the Internet. As the people, we must actively study these laws and regulations, guard these laws and regulations, and keep morality from the bottom line.
To manage the "microphone" in your hand, you need to have excellent knowledge. Have you ever been the spreader of rumors? Seeing information that others have asked to repost, have you ever thought about reposting it? Before, the message that "watermelon was injected with AIDS blood, it would be infected if eaten, and forwarded to let more people know" was spread wildly, hurting melon farmers. Regardless of the authenticity of the statement that "watermelon was injected with AIDS blood", those who have received AIDS propaganda know that there is no such way of transmission of AIDS. Rumors stop at the wise. We need to constantly improve ourselves and have strong knowledge to distinguish rumors from the truth.
To take good care of the "microphone" in your hand, you need to have the ability to act and be a communicator of positive energy. The Internet can accelerate the spread of an event and increase the influence of certain opinions. Originally, it was just a one-sided or untrue opinion of a few people, and after being forwarded by the public, it became the "truth." Not long ago, a piece of content was in an amusement park in a shopping mall in Luoyang. Two parents fought because of a small conflict while their children were playing. The video that caused one death and one injury caused a great sensation in the circle of friends and WeChat groups in just half a day. , Everyone published their remarks and forwarded them to friends and colleagues. After the public security organs dispelled the rumors, everyone knew that it was an oolong. The video was actually a video of a conflict that occurred in a shopping mall in a coastal city a few years ago. There were no casualties at that time. However, the public security agency’s anti-rumor information does not have a wide range of false information. I don’t know when the "microphone" in our hands became a negative energy transmitter. We must use the "microphone" in our hands correctly. We must be the communicators of positive energy. We should not spread unverified information, and we should not publish opinions on things we don't understand, and actively spread positive deeds.
