Constitutional Aspects Towards Social Networking Sites Regulation With Freedom Of Speech & Expression

  • Dr. Haider Ali, Dr. Pankaj Choudhury


Social networking sites serve as a "digital public square" for virtual democracy, allowing people to create organisations and associate in order to exercise their right to free speech and expression while maintaining their privacy. To examine the gap between the theory and actuality of India's social networking legislation, as well as their constitutional validity, the researcher looks to the following literature. The Indian Constitution enumerates a comprehensive collection of fundamental rights, all of which are subject to specified limitations. The Indian Constitution is written in such a way that it explains the fundamental concepts in a clear and explicit manner. International organizations are working to bring uniformity to the laws governing information technology and to promote harmony, international collaboration, and peace among nations around the world in the face of transnational difficulties and challenges in cyberspace users of social networking sites can connect and use their right to free speech and expression anywhere in the world. However, if not properly managed, the same weapon might turn the nation against itself, causing violence and disruption in the public realm of civil society, and so become a double-edged sword.
