Social Media Thread

Post by jamwal » Mon Oct 02, 2017 11:37 am

We already have a thread for Twitter, but majority of people are on Whatsapp and Facebook rather than on Twitter. Even the poor have low-end smartphones and these two are perhaps the only social media platforms they use due to it's convenience, ease of use and no limit on characters, videos among other factors.
A lot of people are complaining about the flood of misleading information being spread by AAP-CONs and leftists. This thread can be a reference point for countering the false propaganda. Instead of individually typing posts, we can share those here and help distribute them to people in our circles. Types of posts meant for this thread:

1) Pro-India images, videos, texts and other media which can be shared on social media platforms including but not limited to Whatsapp and Facebook.

2) Counters to malicious propaganda like the petrol prices bullshit, Reliance JIO GST evasion and others.



You can use Whatsapp on computer.

Open https://web.whatsapp.com.
If you're not already logged in, it'll show you a QR code.
Open Whatsapp on your phone/tablet and click on drop down icon on extreme right .
Click on WhatsappWeb and scan the QR code on screen.
And you are logged in to Whatsapp on computer too.

Both devices need to have a working internet connection for this.



Sharing images

There are a number of pretty good websites for sharing images like http://imgur.com , https://www.flickr.com, https://photos.google.com and many others. Google photos will take backups of most of your pictures by default on Android phones.


Downloading videos
From youtube:
Add pwn in fron of yourtube url to download them as video or audio files.
Example:
Original video link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOa04NN1M_Q
To download it: https://pwnyoutube.com/watch?v=UOa04NN1M_Q


From Facebook

Rightclick on video and click on Show URL.
Copy url and paste it on http://fbdown.net.


From Twitter
Copy paste the Tweet link on http://twittervideodownloader.com.
Click on the Tweet text, not video itself to get the link in addressbar of browser.

Most of these videos can be shared on Whatsapp and other places.

Yes it is.

Click on TWEET (like on the text accompanying the video), not video itself. You will get a link in addressbar like https://twitter.com/TheOneDhawan/status ... 5707860992
Paste this link on http://twittervideodownloader.com and download

Here is a post I received on FB from a person who is Hindu nationalist. This is what we are up against:
Take note - How the Left Narrative wins by 'default' among youth
During a social engagement over the weekend, I struck up a conversation with a young kid (12th grade) who happened to be seated next to me at the banquet. For the first few mins it was a usual "uncle and kid" talk - which school, which grade, SAT, college applications, intended major, etc. etc. I asked which major she is interested in, and the colleges she is applying. She replied that she is interested in pursuing 'International Law' and she is targeting Univ. of Chicago, Northwestern Univ, Yale, etc. The choice of major provoked my interest (both her parents are doctors), and I decided to probe further, taking the queries gradually to different levels. To my surprise and amazement this young lady held her own in all kinds of political issues - Trump, Congress, Democrats, Republicans, United Nations, .... on and on. I asked her what prompted her to take of International Law and what specific issues she is interested in? She replied she wants to specialize in the cause of 'stateless peoples'. I further probed - ok, give me an example? Pat came the reply - the 'Rohingyas in Mynmar' ! What ??? She lucidly narrated her point of view on the issue - all Left propaganda. It was like listening to a Washington DC policy wonk. A kid in 12th grade with such deep insights. I consciously decided not to let my Hindu political animal be out, instead, I listened to her very very carefully. I asked her where she got her information and perspective from? She replied - from 'snapchat'. Rohingyas on Snapchat ??? What the hell is the locus standi of 'snapchat' in such a serious political and policy matter? I always thought social media, by and large, is used by brainless idiots who could not compose a cogent phrase in the English language, more than 140 characters. I asked her - 'how do you discuss an issue such as Rohingyas in a forum where you can post only pictures'? She said, 'Uncle, you are confusing snapchat with instagram'. Oh no ! I made a complete fool of myself in front of this kid. For a moment I thought I knew a thing or two about the technology - Reminiscing the FIDONet years in late 1980s when there was no wired Internet, which required messages to be transmitted via modem dialins; After which came the character-based USENET newsgroups on supercomputers, the advent of TCP/IP, the coming of world wide web, ... and right down to apps on smartphones - much water has flown down the Ganga, the Volga, the Nile, the Mississippi, the Amazon combined. I have seen, and assumed, a dumbing down of the intellect and the discourse. I had presumed that those who read and wrote books are a quality above.
Then, it hit me like a ton of bricks! A new generation is in the works. Perhaps there is no dumbing down after all. It is just that the new generation will source its research and knowledge differently than what I was used to. This new generation will have its thinkers, intellectuals, leaders, and statesmen. As I write this reflective note, there is an empire-builder out there in the making. My self-ego (and the accompanying qualified arrogance) lies shattered. For good. The reason to worry is that the Left narrative might have already taken hold in the new media. I got to hear from a 12th grader how Modi and Yogi are both "majoritarian supremacists" who are denying justice to the muslims.
For the Internet Hindu activists there is a new frontier .....

I posted that to inform HNs over here that RW is losing control over social media. There was a time when RW was in full control over social media and LW was in control of mass media. But today, RW is still not in control of mass media and LW is gaining control of social media. The long term danger is that RW will again lose control over the narrative.

Take a look at what happened to BRF. Some lefty got the forum of 20 years standing banned.

PS
What exactly in my post do you find trolling? If you can't explain that, then your behaviour is trolling - needless provocation.

It is something to do with unorganised nature of our so called RW. Every one wants to make a point. While it looks good at that moment, they are getting played like fools.

Point of this thread is to form a counter to common leftist anti-India anti-Hindu narrative on some common social media platforms.
They have managed to pigeonhole all non-leftist in to certain non favourable stereotypes. We can stl east try to counter thus in whatever way we can.

Little disagreements are unavoidable but don't do blue on blue.

I have observed that Kids (especially girls/women) are very liberal till age 30., then they become somewhat center and if there is a hope they become conservative (if had family and children) around 45+ years of age.
