He said, “Today, we find ourselves amidst a profound transformation in the world of media and communication. It is not just a shift; it is a revolution. A media convergence is driven by new tools and techniques that are reshaping how we create, share and consume information. With the increasing use of social media, it also means, how we react to the information that we consume.”

He said that the rise of social media has fundamentally changed the way people access news and engage with current events.
