Requesting students to use social media platforms for its benefits rather than wasting time scrolling aimlessly. To be safe, you need to think. Social media is the new idiom of communication. Follow good creative pages, engage in social media platforms for learning creative arts and educating yourselves rather than aimlessly scrolling and not getting the most out of it. Students should be encouraged to double check before sharing any information on social media platforms.
Guwahati Police Commissioner Harmeet Singh on Friday urged youth to engage responsibly on social media and only with its positive aspects, underlining that they cannot be expected to remain off it altogether as networking sites are the new means of communication.

We must navigate to stay safe," Singh said at the launch of a digital literacy and awareness programme for adolescents and youth in Assam.
Technology Company Meta, erstwhile Facebook Inc, partnered with the Assam Police to roll out the initiative with an aim of creating a safer online environment, a release said.
