Social Media is a powerful tool to spread the word. If the word is a truth, it will be appreciated but if the word is a fake one, it creates lots of chaos. Spreading fake news in social media is a crime and a software techie, who thought he is smart enough to fool people, is now arrested.
As per the details, Jayalalitha's health issue turned to be the headlines in the media from the past few days. Just for fun, a software techie Satish Kumar (26) recorded an audio which says that Jayalalitha's health is in a very bad condition. He pushed it into the social media saying that it was the audio of one of the Apollo staff who were treating Jayalalitha.
It turned to be a hit in the social media and this turned to be a tough one for the software techie. Police traced his IP address and caught him for committing this crime of spreading fake rumors. Jayalalitha's followers mentioned that there is no truth in that news and asked people not to believe that audio clipping.
