The British prince is not tender to social media. “The digital landscape is sick and companies like yours have contributed to a hate crisis, health crisis and even crisis of confidence through financing and other support,” he writes in an opinion piece for ‘Fast Company’. In recent weeks, the couple has asked several large companies, entrepreneurs and marketing agencies to review their support and contribution to these online platforms. Markle and the Prince hope to be able to convey a more positive message on social media.
He also asked online communities to be “defined more by compassion than hatred, by truth rather than misinformation, by equality rather than injustice, and by free, rather than armed, words.”
The prince also warns against the dangers of social media. “Every time you click, they learn more about you. Your personal information is exchanged for dollars. you think it’s about free social media, but it’s not. ”
The prince’s words don’t just come out of the blue. He and Meghan already started a campaign in June to ban hatred on social media. The start coincided with the ‘Stop Hate for Profit’ movement, which has already convinced more than 1,000 companies to send a positive message to the world. “We still have a lot of work ahead of us and there is not much time left. We have to change now. ”
