Social media unhappiness

Social media in Oman is used by hundreds of thousands people and therefore, if monitored, it can be a very useful tool for the government. With so many people on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, blogs, forums, etc. there’s a good chance to find out what the population, or at least a part of it, is happy or unhappy with.
I’m taking two examples but there's lots more out there; both examples are related to civic education which seems to be an unknown matter to many here in Oman.






Like what you saw? These are very common sights unfortunately. People Animals go for picnics or camping and leave behind lots of trash. I've taken these images from the Facebook group ‘Clean up Oman’ where a bunch of nice people are doing a great job in both creating awareness about the problem as well as organizing clean up sessions. Hats off to these guys and girls!
Another case of growing unhappiness is on Instagram. Because of the not adequate number of parking spaces or simply people’s ignorance and arrogance we find ourselves dealing with such issue on the daily basis. Not only these idiots take two spaces but also block emergency exits, fire hoses and, of course, park in the disabled parking areas too.

 

 

 

This account, Muscat Grand Muttonheads, is quite popular and people contribute too by taking photos and sending them to the account owner.
I've seen recently, and I've been told too, that the Royal Oman Police is taking measures by issuing penalty tickets outside malls and other busy areas. Well done to the ROP...the big brother is watching.

  1. Excellent post except when you said that 'Animals go for camping and leave trash...'. Real animals would never do that.

  5. Yeah.. It's truth. We've got a lot of such "animals" everywhere. But we mustn't be like them. I think it's a big problem for every country and society. Let's make our world better. First of all we should start with us.
