I AM NOT ON FACEBOOK-SOYINKA
Despite the fact that there is an authentic verified page opened in his name on facebook, which commands a following of about 500,000 people, Africa’s first noble Laureate in Literature, Professor Wole Soyinka has distance himself from its use and activities.
You could remember that back in May, Prof Wole Soyinka had categorically condemned the social networking sites, declaring that they were fast becoming a menace after he was alleged to have branded First Lady Patience Jonathan an “illiterate” on a bogus facebook account. However, the statement was credited to one of the numerous fake facebook accounts opened with his identity.
“Let me take this opportunity to announce yet again that I do not tweet, blog or whatever gores on in this increasingly promiscuous medium” Soyinka said in a press statement denouncing the comments attributed to him on a fake Facebook account.
Is the social media truly becoming a menace?
