ABSTRACT SUBMITTED TO WEBSPAC 2018 NEW DELHI. “Face Book & Other Such Social Communication Websites: a Boon or Curse for Mankind?” Professor VRIDHACHALEMPILLAY SUBRAMANIAM. e-mail : firstname.lastname@example.org/ Mob: +9444042771 / 00 +44 + 07405989811 ABSTRACT. 1. Man, being a social animal naturally wishes to advance with sophisticated scientific technologically enabled tools of communication. With the advent of Internet and Wi-Fi connectivity Data processing and instantaneous sharing tools naturally led him from ethereal to virtual, wired to wireless and currently from social to anti-social communicative dimensions. Belatedly and hurriedly - legislated Laws do not seem to match the speed of sophisticated poachers who have attributed a nobility to their dirty habits of poaching and pilfering other’s highly personal data to meet their nefarious ends. Such Electronic thieves have many avenues of escape available within the system: (1) Ethical Hacking in the name of Security Supervision ( ‘everyone is under scrutiny all the time’) (2) Creating “ False/dummy” account under spurious and non-existing names. (3) 108 ways of stealing Pass Words from gullible accounts on the Net. (4) Aggressive Commercial Marketing techniques. Et al. This Paper delves deep into the origin, development and mushrooming growth of Social websites such as the FaceBook, the Twitter, The Instagram, The WhatsApp and ever so many other creations of a similar noble tribe. While they are ushered into the Communications Cradle they make do with many promises of Data preservation and privacy – maintenance assurances. Most of the time the gullible user is asked to provide the Service Provider with personal Data of the kind that Banks / Hospitals / Insurers of Life Insurance Companies might wish to possess on their records. The urge to socially become one - Up with our Johns in the neighbourhood compels our curiosity to such an extent that we forget all our sense of caution to share all our personal data. This becomes such a routine matter for all the millions of newcomers day by day. That is the kind of fodder that some of the Anti - Social elements were waiting to exploit through hacking personal data. Huge promises about “ Personal Data Privacy Preservation” were conveniently forgotten and such Data get commercially exchanged between other Sources, who put them to nefarious misuse. This" breach of faith " goes unchecked for a long time because of ineffective Cyberlaws, absence of severe punitive measures and quite often than not the Fence Maker himself is committing fraudulent stealth activities in the name of “ Maintenance of National/ International ‘Peace-Keeping’ obligations. Nothing more needs be cited as collateral evidence other than the present ongoing probe into serious allegations of ‘poaching’ by an external Agency that consciously intruded into the Presidential Election in a leading Country's Democratic process and caused unexpected upheavals. As I am submitting this Abstract today a Medical Doctor has committed suicide on misinterpreting a " Prank Message played upon him" through WhatsApp. What a tragedy to the peace of human mind? This Paper is a serious Scientific Application Oriented Analysis of the several Instances of breach of Faith committed and likely to be committed in future as well of such Socially – alluring Frankenstein Monsters who would ultimately devour all values of purity and safety in present lives as well as futuristic Communicational Development Technologies, unless otherwise safeguarded by Scientific " safeguards". This paper shall proceed to examine some such safety measures. Key Words: Scientific and Technological advancements in the domain of Communication – vantages and disadvantages – Promises made and Breach of Faith – goes unnoticed amidst the hurry burry materialism - Legal Loopholes exploited – the International Damage – Tip of Iceberg – Achtung! – Role of Acousticians - " Accept the Challenge " !
