India Support PM Modi’s Digital India Vision But Not Facebook’s (Internet.org) Version Of Digital India

India Support PM Modi’s Digital India Vision But Not Facebook’s (Internet.org) Version Of Digital India : As We all know that Facebook is trying very hard to bring its Internet.org to India. It was disallowed in India and is now being sold as “Free Basics”. Recently, they launched a super cool looking feature to change your profile picture to one with tricolour hues. This is supposed to be your show of support to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India initiative.

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.

This blatant manipulation that Facebook is capable of is the exact reason why Internet.org is harmful for the Internet. Yet, our own Prime Minister, Narendra Modi is leading the cause for Facebook.

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’.
