What Is PM Modi Digital India Vision & Facebook Version Of Digital India
Lakhs of people just loved this cool feature and started changing their profile pics as soon as they saw these giants changing their profile picture. However, please beware, Facebook is actually counting each DP change to as your support for its on “Internet.org” in India.
Remember, it took a number of Internet influencers almost a month to educate people about Net Neutrality and garner about a million and a half signatures against Airtel’s Zero and Facebook’s Internet.org. With a little bit of manipulation, Facebook managed to garner millions of signatures in favour of enabling Internet.org and breaking Internet.org overnight.
Now, you know that Internet.org is not the best thing for netizens. You may ask how? They clearly mentioned the pic as Internet.org Profile Picture. Try this link https://www.facebook.com/supportdigitalindia Just right click your mouse on the profile pic and inspect the Element.
What Really Happens When You Change Your Profile Pic?
A look at the source code and well, the profile pic is NOT for the support of Digital India, but for Facebook’s Internet.org initiative.
If you clearly observe the highlight in blue above, it says that the name given to the profile picture is Internet.org Profile Picture ie.. the Facebook’s initiative. People, without noticing this, changed their profile pictures, in effect offering support for Internet.org.
Digital India is a great initiative that will lead to a lot of opportunities in India. However, we must make sure that we support Digital India and not ‘Facebook’s Digital India’.
