BANGKOK, 15 June 2018 (NNT) – More than 80 percent of Thai people use social media to share negative and inappropriate information, according to a survey conducted by the Electronic Transactions Development Agency. 

The Culture Minister, Veera Rojpojanarat, on Thursday (June 14th) attended a forum on promoting cooperation to prevent the dissemination of inappropriate content on social media.

At the forum, Mr. Veera said the survey found that 86 percent of the respondents usually spend more than three hours a day sharing negative and inappropriate information, such as committing suicide and physical assaults, online. As a result, children who may have less discretion would imitate this unconstructive behavior, and this can lead to violence in the society. 

Participants at the forum exchanged ideas on ways to solve and prevent the problem.

i don't believe it for a second, who deems something as negative ? according to them, this forum, at least a thai analog, would be 'negative'

This might mean that as many as 20% could be working on government click farms spreading positive and appropriate information.

I have many Thai friends on Facebook, all I get is pictures of food and pictures of babies. Is this negative or just boring?

I agree.
How were the whole food photos in the statistics rated?
