Task 4


In a more social perspective, the
population illustrates a trend that is measured in terms of a social context. There
are three questions besides the demographics, it is a questionnaire with three
questions the first is based on beliefs and the second is based on the
subjects, and the third is based on the
situations, there are numerous options in each, since it is a different option set of variables, these are all nominal

1. With regards to social life of the respondents, freedom
of speech, can be denoted by a different
orientation that is studied. The dominant
direction of the respondents lies in the
domain of a belief that depicts the bestowal of the fundamental rights of freedom of speech, even in the case of
disagreement in terms of differing views. This is followed by the belief of
freedom of speech as a fundamental human
right. Together, these two lights for
about 76% of the sample being observed. It is a significant
finding of this research study and hence is considered as a substantial topic for study. This indicates
that the majority of the respondents believed in the freedom of speech.

2. In the observation of a social context, the taboo topics online is of a variety of
different genres. In short, the respondents were then asked about the issues they think should be banned from online
discussion and those had several exciting
options. These proposals were rated as
Revenge Porn with the highest percentage followed by Religious Extremism,
Pedophilia, Body Shaming and Criminal activities. These 5 topics should be banned,
considered by 68% of the sample that is being interviewed in this domain. I
think that Religious Extremism and Criminal activities should be one of those prohibited topics. This is in turn supported by
the majority of the populace. While the
people believe in free speech, there are still some topics that they think should be banned from the internet; these include criminal activities and
religious extremism.

3. Moreover, socially it can be observed that the scenario
where one’s gender is abused, it can be
seen that the potential reason in terms of gender is determined by the overall
determinant of seeing this kind of comments that were aimed towards other
people and was a third party in this scene. In the scenario about an appearance, the majority too had seen these
comments and followed by a large chunk of recipients of such comments. Together
they make up 56% of the total sample. In terms of sexual abuse, the majority had observed several comments being
targeted towards other people. This denotes that this event had left its impact
on others. In terms of scenario building,
most of the people like to watch along the sidelines
and love to stay out of the picture, considering the act done as a wrong deed.

If the social perspective of the abuse
regarding the ethnic origin, the majority of the sample had seen this kind of comments passed and did nothing to
stop it. In terms of religion too, the majority had witnessed these comments as
a third person being given to others in
terms of offense. In regards the mental or physical disability, it is an
observed fact that a large chunk of the pie had observed others being affected
by this abuse. These are third-person views that consider themselves an outsider to
the scenario. With regards to the political or social opinion, it was observed that the potential reason for
degrading is that they believe themselves
as the third person even though they
share similar ideas. Threats of violence or rape are
majorly from the third person perspective, but it can be seen that the people who had received such comments. Threats of
killing are witnessed by many, but few had reported. It can be observed that the overall results are from a
third person perspective. I preferred to report every incident of abuse
discussed above. But the majority it seems is only interested in watching it
from a third person’s perspective.

Question 2:

The overall collected results illustrate that the people in
favor of freedom of speech, dislike criminal activities and religious extremism
to be discussed over the internet and consider all abuses wrong but fail to act
on it. In an overall social perspective, it can be seen that an extra question
has to be added. This question would be regarding the social importance of
freedom of speech and the suggested banned topics online; this would remove the confusion of freedom of speech and its link
with the already existing potential of the contradiction in a statement. If people like freedom of speech and
consider it their right then why are the topics highlighted against it. And if
it is not the case, then why do they favor freedom of speech. I would add a
question like; Do you feel confident to say your opinion in public, despite of
disagreements with others?
