Essay outline : Social media gives rise to conflict. Do you agree ?

Introduction :(1) Unlike many young people today, their parents, teachers andmost adults they know grew up in the time before the internet and beforethe era of social media. (2) Those who are suspicious of social media pointout how this technology seems to be some kind of Pandora’s Box that givesrise to the panoply of conflicts spilling out from the virtual world into reallife. (3) They have good reason for this because the nature of social medialends itself to engendering and perpetuating discord or dissent. (4) This isnot to say that the opposite – that social media promotes togetherness orharmony – does not happen. (5) However, due to overwhelming evidence,the existence of such positive outcomes are insufficient to invalidate theassertion that social media triggers conflict.BP 1 :(1) Social media

rallies the like-minded, for better or for worse

.(2) It is without a doubt that so many positive missions have been promotedvia social media. (3) These causes call for people to set aside theirdifferences and work towards a good goal. (4) However, any cause that isworthwhile will face opposition, online and offline. (4) Conflict becomesinevitable, and it is social media that has facilitated this.---------- add examples here (environmentalism, human rights etc.) ----------(5) It is also possible for the cause itself to also be genuinely malicious. (6) Then, social media could be misused to instigate and spread conflict.---------- add examples here (terrorism, racism etc.) ----------BP 2 :(1) Social media also gives rise to conflict because it is seen as the

alternative to mainstream media and a viable outlet for politicaldissidence that would otherwise be suppressed

. (2) Mainstream mediais often known to be controlled either by the government or large mediacorporations. (3) On the other hand, social media is synonymous withfreedom of expression which is buttressed, to some extent, by the twinpillars of the internet : anonymity and impunity. (4) Views that are anti-establishment find release in cyberspace because censorship, editing andfiltering are far less rigorous than on mainstream outlets. (5) These ideasoften start as seemingly benign, casual, personal thoughts, no different fromthe thinking aloud that other people do online for a cornucopia of topicsranging from their relationship problems to celebrity gossip. (6) Numerous‘likes’, ‘favourites’ and ‘shares’ later, the anti-government perspective picksup steam and becomes a potentially formidable force for the State to reckon
