Social Media Operators Harp On Responsible Practices In The Cyberspace

In a contributory move to ongoing discussions on cyberspace practices in Nigeria, players in the social media ecosystem have advocated responsible practices and discretion as some of the solutions to maintaining the sanctity of the online interaction environment.

This view was shared by different speakers at the maiden edition of the Bodex Social Media Hangout held in Lagos last Saturday.

The event, which had some of the leading names in the online and offline media, entertainment and marketing communications industries in attendance, was a call to operators in the social media ecosystem to acknowledge the sweeping influence of internet-enabled innovations on our society and consciously manage how they are utilised as channels of communication to protect our national security and social harmony as a nation.

In her welcome address, Ms. Florence Bodunrin Hungbo, CEO, Bodex Media Group, who hosted the event noted that “we can no longer dismiss the influence of the internet and its creations. We need to recognise them as the greatest agenda-setting tools in the modern world, but we now need to exercise great caution in the way and manner we deploy them as engagement resources”.

This perspective was also reinforced by Gloria Ohagwu, a presenter and producer at the Voice of Nigeria, and Led Voice Merchant at The TalknowCrat Enterprise, while talking on Social Media: weapon of destruction and progression.
She highlighted the paradoxical effects of social media on the modern world, saying that “the internet technology has as much positive as negative impacts on our world.

Earlier, the Executive Assistant to Lagos State Governor on New Media and Public Relations, Mr. Olusegun Fafore speaking on “Consequences of Insidious Comments in the Cyberspace” said that “the word ‘insidious’ in the topic is the key word. It is an adjective, qualifying the noun ‘comments’”.

He added that “without the qualifier, which expresses attitude and disposition, the word ‘comments’ in the cyberspace context may not ordinarily be a subject of concern to anyone. But where comments become ‘sinister’, ‘treacherous’, ‘deceptive’, ‘false’, ‘threatening’ and ‘disturbing’, they become destructive to our social composition. Then we need to become measured”.

We need to exercise high level of prudence and discipline in how we engage online, particularly when the benefit of context is lost to technology-created facelessness” he concluded.

Additionally, special appearance by King Wasiu Ayinde Mashal (KI), Former Inspector General of Police Chief Tunji Alapini and other A-list Artistes like Q-Dot, 9ice, Ara (the first female drummer), Nollywood actors, and Asiri comedy added colour to the occasion.
