The advent of digital technology with a switch from analogue to digital signals, combined with the web network and satellite transmission has triggered a communication revolution. It has largely reshaped human communication and social interactions in the post modern civilization of 21st century. Google, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and YouTube are now household names. They are now part of the social fabric. The change in the digital landscape has been perceived largely due to a number of communication resurgences and a few more technical upheavals. First, internet has been found to be the real change agent as a whooping increase of 93% users has been discerned among the age group of 12 to 17 from 2000 to 2010. Second, the wireless connectivity has been identified as another change factor. It is observed that more than two third of adults and three fourth of teen agers use the cloud. The third change agent has been Social networking. Recent studies found that social networking is not only popular among the young users; it is growing among older users also. This constant connectivity has a far reaching impact. It has been rapidly ‘changing social pattern and info flows’. The political impact of social media has focused on the power of mass protests to topple governments. The paper aims at assessing the significance of these momentous changes that may lead to deep social and cultural transformations in human society. It will also probe into the debates: what should be the limit of free speech and criticism in social media? If free speech is controlled in social media, how can social media reflect a democratic space? Is the internet really free? In the post-globalisation world, has the internet been metamorphosed into a giant corporate tool for regimenting people and their ideas than becoming an active agent of democracy and knowledge generation? 

Professor Debashis Chakrabarti: A Short Biography 

Debashis Chakrabarti, a noted media scholar and researcher, is currently a Professor and Head of the Department of Communication Studies at the College of Applied Sciences at the Ministry of Higher Education in Oman. Before taking to teaching at the College of Applied Sciences in Oman in 2006, he was Professor of Mass Communication and Dean at the School of Information Sciences in Assam University, a central University in India, 2004-06. His abilities as a communication program leader has been recognized internationally as he chaired the Department of Mass Communication at the University of Asmara, Eritrea, 2001-04, as a professor and initiated publication of a student newspaper at a time when freedom of press was gagged in Eritrea. Prior to this appointment, he had also chaired the Department of Mass Communication at Aligarh Muslim University, 1997-99 and introduced M.A. in Mass Communication. 
His scholasticism and research abilities have been acclaimed internationally. He was nominated in the International Editorial Board of the Journal of USH Journalism Studies, Annals of Spiru Haret University, Romania and another scholastic journal, The International Journal of 21st Century Education, USA. He was offered Commonwealth Fellowship by the Scholarship Commission in the UK for pursuing his post-doctoral research on “Analysing the Trends of Coverage in The BBC on Terrorism”. He had the opportunity to work with Professor Emeritus James D. Halloran on his research project at the University of Leicester, UK, 1994-95. 
He has developed news spectrum analysis in measuring the ethics of the press in his Ph.D. dissertation, “An insight into the crisis in ethics of journalism in India”. It has stirred a huge controversy in the Indian national media as it was published as a book with the title, “If the dog does not bark”. He has authored another controversial book, “The Hara-kiri of a Nation”, on the catastrophe of the caste and religious strife in India. His research and scholarly writings have focused on analysing global conflicts, terrorism and responses to terrorism, media policy, media ethics, media globalisation and gender issues. He has done a pioneering research on SMS text analysis. His future research plan is to achieve new directions in analyzing text as data.
