With the advent of social media a lot can be done with just passing of a message through a post or tweet. Sometimes or rather many times these day’s people are confused too with these helping messaged and end up spreading false news.
Actress Shruti Haasan learned this the hard way recently while trying to do her part for the Chennai floods crisis. She helped spread a message for saving a child that went viral only to later realize that the kid has already been taken care off earlier in the year itself.
One can give her a pass here as things like these are hard to track in social media. But fans and other’s part of the social media created enough noise recently for it to be heard by the Shruti. People who themselves have been through such lack of clarity while helping have sympathized with her though.
