Of late, we don't just see debate on social media, but debate about it. There has been plenty of controversy about regulation, freedom of speech, big tech, sovereignty and so on. In this podcast, we explored some of these nuances with Abhishek Ashtana. Abhishek Asthana is an entrepreneur and founder of Ginger Monkey LLP and is a social media influencer with over 1Million followers on twitter.
In this wide-ranging podcast, we tackled issues such as the influence and power of social media. We delved into how it has evolved and grown over the past 10 years, along with discussing the nature of social engineering that allowed them to reach the ubiquity they boast today. We also discussed the nature of social media platforms, weighing whether they are platforms or publishers.
We also discussed nuanced subjects such as the problem of regulating content, establishing redressal mechanisms and other similar systems, as well as how brands are viewing social media today. Finally, we concluded with discussing India's role as a market for Big Tech companies and developing indigenous social media platforms.
