This article discusses a debatable notion that new social media alternately acts as the ground of political revolution or creates new social identity and induces cultural change. Social media sites are information and communication technologies (ICTs) that enable production and sharing of digital content in a mediated social setting. Several statistic reports revealed that these online media showed remarkable usage among citizens of countries across the globe. Having those facts on hand, some experts deduces that the higher usage of social media then more likely to seize the opportunity of increasing engagement in various issues, including tools for nearly all of the world’s current revolutions. The article also elaborates some counter claims to the notion. As a single click on Facebook group and merely a tweet do not make people politically activated, socially changed and culturally developed. Even though new social media acts as “a great mouthpiece”, it seems to be an austere logical linkage to say that new social media serve as a way to trigger the world’s current revolutions. All in all, new social media platforms can be utilized by their users with any kind of purposes especially in terms of providing fast and quick informational system.
