RESPONSE WRITING ON IS SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY A SHAM FOR MEDIA? By Dr. Prabhanjan Kumar Yadav Social media effects our community in various ways. I think this effects can be a threat to the citizens. That 's why, I especially choose this document to make things clear. This document tells us how corrupted media can be in our society. It made me question my ethical opinions about journalizm.
