    Social media and intellectual building

    Facebook is not a place for insights at all. It's not a source. It is not a means of knowing. The world of social media is full of conceits and fake pretensions. I observed most of the people who claim themselves to be intellectuals are not academic experts of the subject they do critique upon. And they adopt cheap tricks of trolling to attract the young audience and those audience of them is not well-read either. Their followers often try to critique those authors and works they never read at all. So I have a sincere advice for all of them who criticize an author or a work without reading it.. if they actually want to know, they should go and read instead.
