Prasar Bharati irked by false accounts and sites


NEW DELHI: With people becoming active on social media, all kinds of websites or blog sites are being created ? often by people who have nothing to do with the person or organisation in whose name it is created.

While film stars have had to deal with this menace for quite some time, Prasar Bharati has now taken umbrage at the large number of websites or blogsites being run in the name of All India Radio or Doordarshan.

So even as it admits that social media has proved to be of immense importance in staying connected with national and international audiences, the public service broadcaster has issued a list of the sites or social networking handles that it controls.  

This has been done, Prasar Bharati officials told indiantelevision.com, because of the manner in which the open platform is being misused by some miscreants as they create fake accounts and issue information in the name of the pubcaster.

However, the pubcaster said this is the first list and it would be issuing further details concerning local stations soon.
